Trio Elatha was formed in 2012 by three Irish musicians, violinist Zoe Conway, guitarist Brendan Walsh and cellist Ailbhe McDonagh. Subsequently violinist Lynda O'Connor joined the group. The trio has enjoyed a busy schedule touring around Ireland and Europe as a traditional Irish fusion group.
Trio Elatha bring together elements of Irish folk and classical music. Their concert programmes feature arrangements of traditional Irish tunes coupled with their own compositions.
All three members are prizewinner’s of major competitions and have performed solos with major orchestras throughout Ireland, Europe and the USA. They are all avid chamber musicians in varied genres, collaborating with such artists as Michael Collins, Nobuko Imai, Chee Yun Kim, Michael O'Suilleabhain, Michael Buble and DeDannan. They launched their debut album “Trasnan” in the summer and it is proving very popular with record sales after their live gigs, a testament to this engaging and entertaining trio.
