TRUE LIFE TRIO

    True Life Trio   performs riveting vocal harmonies from Eastern Europe, the Americas & beyond. This innovative trio explores the creative possibilities of cross-fertilization of different traditions with unlikely timbres connecting Bulgaria to the Bayou. TLT’s improvisation-laced repertoire includes original songs and folk tunes from far-flung lands such as Macedonia, Louisiana, Albania, Ukraine, Mexico, Poland, Italy and Georgia. Featuring the powerful vocal talents of three dynamic performers whose musical collaboration was forged in  Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble   , the trio delves deep into a vast array of folk music that lends itself to three-part vocal harmony, massaging and expanding the boundaries of these traditional styles.  The result is a sweet, sonic explosion that melts in the listener’s ear and that is uniquely True Life Trio.       True Life Trio is:   Leslie Bonnett: voice, fiddle, percussion   Briget Boyle: voice, guitar, percussion   Juliana Graffagna: voice, accordion, percussion        Photo by April Renae
