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!
It can be very difficult to know how to reach new clients, brides and grooms, in this day and age. We have put together our website, set up a Facebook page and arranged to have a profile on Twitter. However, it is still hard to reach potential clients.
We have attended Perfect Bliss Fairs in the past. We went to a fantastic Fair in Lisburn Civic Center last year. However, we still feel that our best marketing tool is the internet. With life being so busy, the easiest place to look for something is on the internet. But as a band working in the wedding industry it can be difficult to get your website to the top of the list. We can pay for ad-words and other advertising, but the golden key, is to reach page one of google!
If you have any other suggestions, please let us know! In the mean time, remember we are now taking bookings for ceremonies in 2017.
The three members of the Northern Ireland wedding band Trinity Traditional Trio are also members of the highly acclaimed folk group The Dandy Horses. This time last year we were busy performing at wedding ceremonies and drinks receptions throughout Northern Ireland, as well as getting ready to release our Christmas single 'A Winter Waltz'. Christmas is such a lovely time of the year and winter can also be a fantastic time to get married. Have a little look at one of the photos we took during our photo shoot last year.
