MusicTRÚ livestream

Dónal Kearney, Zach Trouton and Michael Mormecha are all seasoned artists in their own right, united by a passionate appreciation of the material they perform. Their mesmerising live show has exposed TRÚ’s performance skills, the craft of their arrangements and the sheer power of their storytelling. There is nothing traditional about TRÚ except the songs themselves.

How gorgeous is this?

The trú was a mythological trio of poet-musicians in ancient Ulster. They were revered throughout ancient Ireland, some believing their songs and stories came to them from the future. Others maintained that the trú were possessed by spirits during performance. As such, they were considered gatekeepers to the Otherworld.

It’s here where Northern Irish trio ‘TRÚ’ draw their inspiration. The band’s song selection relies on the melodic and lyrical calibre of songs that stand the test of time. With contemporaries like Ye Vagabonds, Lankum and Lisa O’Neill, there is a sense that these old songs are inspiring something that will last.

Absolutely amazing!
