The Red Poppy Art House is pleased to present True Life Trio and Honey Whiskey Trio together to explore captivating vocal harmonies and melodies.

True Life Trio weaves sumptuous vocal harmonies and sultry rhythms from Eastern Europe, the Americas and beyond. This innovative trio explores the creative possibilities of cross-fertilization incorporating 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, and features the powerful vocal talents of three dynamic performers whose musical collaboration was forged in Kitka Women’s Vocal Ensemble.

True Life Trio features:
Leslie Bonnett – vocals, fiddle, percussion
Briget Boyle – vocals, guitar, percussion
Juliana Graffagna – vocals, accordion, percussion

The Honey Whiskey Trio explores harmony in folk, bluegrass and any melody that catches the ear. Through their powerful, yet sweet harmonies, body percussion, haunting melodies and vitality on stage, Honey Whiskey Trio captivates and moves audiences. Considered “one of the most talented vocal harmony groups performing today” by Harmony Sweepstakes executive producer John Neal, and ”one of the very best arrivals this year on my stage” by Bob Stane of The Coffee Gallery Backstage, Honey Whiskey Trio is a group you don’t want to miss live.

Honey Whiskey Trio features:
Courtney Gasque – vocals, mandolin, body percussion
Ann-Louise Thaiss – vocals, guitar, body percussion
Christina Wilson – vocals, washboard, body percussion
