TRÚ is a folk trio from Northern Ireland. Inspired by the Ulster song tradition, TRÚ creates music drawing on an eclectic musical heritage. From Gaelic sean nós to Appalachian ballads to Scots poetry, the band’s song selection relies on the melodic and lyrical calibre of songs that stand the test of time.
TRÚ is Dónal Kearney, Zach Trouton and Michael Mormecha, all seasoned artists in their own right, all with distinct backgrounds; Irish nationalist, Ulster-Scots, and British-Ukrainian. Their different upbringings only enhance the trio’s musical conversation since they are united by a passionate appreciation of the folk material they perform.
Their mesmerising live show has exposed the intimacy of their performance skills, the craft of their arrangements, and the sheer power of their storytelling. There is nothing traditional about TRÚ except the songs themselves.
