Triflemore is a transatlantic folk duo, including one from small-town America and the other from the northernmost islands of Scotland, creating progressive folk with flavours of vintage British Isles folk baroque and Celtic. Analog singer-songwriters dedicated to crafting a crisp, elegant interpretation of lo-fi simplicity, they present their own contemplative poetry and melodies, whilst giving a nod to more formal, traditional folk stylings.
Their calendar is sparse and handcrafted with unique, welcoming venues and inclusive gathering places that are actively serving their communities. From the first line of poetry written, melody sewn together, all the way to exploring new spaces to share words and notes, they savor the creation of connection.
