WATCH THE REPLAY

In 2019, Katie Trautz released her new record, ‘Passage’, produced by Tony winner and Hadestown collaborator, Michael Chorney.  ‘Passage’ is a collection of original music written over the past decade, with echoes of Honky-tonk, Appalachian music, and modern Americana.  It is her second solo album, but the focus on original music sets it apart from Katie’s previous records. Katie is the co-founder of the ‘Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture’, based in Montpelier, VT.  Following her 8-year directorship at the Summit School, she became the Executive Director of Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph, VT.  She now works for Montpelier Alive as the Events and Communications Coordinator, and teaches and performs on the side.

Sky Blue Boys

Two fellows with a mandolin and guitar, they were called “broth-
ers duets,” and during the 1930’s and ’40’s it was the predominant format of country

music, practiced by now-legendary teams on radio stations and stage shows through- out the countryside. Dan and Willy Lindner have revived the tradition and have built up a large repertoire of old ballads, parlor tunes, heart songs and sacred numbers.

Trifolium

Trifolium is made up of three outstanding local musicians: Andy Mueller (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals), Chloe Powell (fiddle, cello, vocals) and Justin Park (guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals).

In addition to growing in a wide variety of settings, producing beautiful flowers, and being Vermont’s state flower, trifolium pratense (a.k.a. red clover) is also a nitrogen fixer.

Farrs Hill

This means that this hearty and beautiful plant improves the soil in which it grows. For all of these reasons, when local musicians Andy Mueller (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals), Chloe Powell (fiddle, cello, vocals) and Justin Park (guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals) were looking for a name for their trio, the name Trifolium was a perfect fit. After all, their aim is to make music that evokes a sense of belonging, of joy and beauty, and of making things a bit better in the world.

Since their inception in 2017, these three talented musicians have been doing just that. Drawing musical influence from New England, Ireland, Appalachia, Quebec and the vast diversity of popular acoustic (and not so acoustic) music, they’ve played for local events, concert series, private parties, and weddings around central Vermont. They’re also well known for staying up way past their bedtimes following the musical muse around a hillside campfire under the moon and stars.
