Triskelion is a new collaboration between Valerie Barr, Richard Scholfield and Cathal Killeen. As a trio they aim to present new and reimagined music to communities throughout Ireland and Scotland via innovative programming, new transcriptions and original compositions. Established following their studies at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, the group formed as a response to the lack of creative opportunity presented during the pandemic.
Drawing on the shared cultural history of Ireland and Scotland along with their own classical training, the trio present their home traditions of music and contrast this proud heritage with original arrangements of classical favourites and new music.
They individually have enjoyed collaborations with many of the UK’s premier orchestras and ensembles, and seek to bring high quality music making to their somewhat unconventional yet incredibly versatile configuration.
