Trio Dhoore, is a band existing out of three brothers from Flanders, founded in 2010, known for its innovative instrumental compositions rooted in traditional Flemish music.
Through the years the brothers managed to create their own musical identity that attracted many listeners far across the Flemish borders. Highlights such as Festival Dranouter (Belgium), Rudolstadt (Germany), Shetland FMF (Scotland), Sidmouth Folk Week (England), Féte de la Vielle (France), Körro FMF (Sweden) and Kaustinen FMF (Finland) are only a few examples of their many successful festival appearances. The brothers have just been nominated for the European Folk Music Award ‘Eiserner Eversteiner’ (the final takes place in December 2019).
Their new (4th) album “August” consists of 9 instrumental chapters and tells about the story of a Flemish fisherman called August who survived over 33 dangerous journeys between Flanders and Iceland in the 18th century in order to feed his family back home. A man who did not give up. An inspiration to many.
August is a purified collection of self-written tunes by the Dhoore-brothers; the result of making music together for almost 10 years. Diatonic accordion, hurdy gurdy, guitar, and electronic effects complement each other seamlessly in the musical soundscape that this album is.
