No Cover Charge Saturdays with Trioc

  • Old Castlemaine Gaol 36 - 48 Bowden Street Castlemaine, VIC, 3450 Australia (map)

A collective of young Victorian instrumentalists performing Irish traditional music, Trioc made their debut at the 2016 National Folk Festival.

Their repertoire includes traditional Irish jigs, reels, hornpipes and slow airs in inventive and sensitive arrangements. Trioc’s sound is at once earthy and ethereal, reflecting the band members’ respect for the torchbearers of the Irish musical tradition as well as their own unique musical vision.

While Trioc is a new initiative, all three members are well-known amongst traditional music audiences and on the folk festival circuit. Cameron Hibbs (fiddle) and Allan Evans (harp and whistles) are best known for performing with the acclaimed band Tolka while Matthew Horsley (uilleann pipes) has primarily worked as a solo artist.
