Traditional Irish Music
We hope these guys are still gigging. We have added a new Soundcloud track to this blog and you still gotta wonder are we ready for the JP Trio. Listen to the track below and you know we are entering some new and wonderful territory. Magical and trance inducing. We have been waiting for someone to break the mould and pop their heads a little bit above the traditional parapet for some time and the JP Trio might just do that. They are brothers Ted (banjo, tenor guitar and vocals) and Jos (button accordion, keyboards and vocals) , Paddy Hazleton (percussion and vocals), joined by Niamh Farrell for the main vocals .
There is a strong jazz and funk influence to their music and arrangements and this takes them into the territory of being the coolest and most hip youngsters around. They break the mould because they can. However their music is still firmly grounded in the tradition and they can play it either way. Therein lies the beauty. Enjoy and watch out for their names. They will crop up a lot in the near future. Their EP can be purchased at www.jptrio.com
