The three musicians from Trinity Traditional trio were very privileged to travel to Ethiopia last St Patrick's day to perform for the British and Irish ambassador at the annual St Patrick's Ball in Addis Ababa. We love performing at wedding ceremonies all over Northern Ireland, but this was something totally different! We had an absolute ball!
I found this little picture of us playing at the Irish session before the ball kicked off and we joined the other members of The Dandy Horses on the huge stage and watched the guests dance the night away!
Such a beautiful hymn! I only recently discovered this hymn very recently, when a bride asked could we perform it at her ceremony. It is just lovely when you find an undiscovered gem and this really is a perfect wedding hymn. As alwats, Trinity Traditional Trio put our own little spin on it. We managed to get a recording of it at a chapel on the Ormeau Rd in Belfast. You can check it out on our listen and watch page. You can hear the beautiful voice of Joanne Cassidy with myself on harmonies and violin. The talented Sean Quinn also adds so much with his mandolin.
Don't forget we are taking bookings for 2017 now. Don't miss out!
