This special collaboration is by three highly accomplished music makers, all of whom are professional artists who have been performing all over the globe for several decades. As solo artists they have all recently released solo albums of varying styles and traditions. With this deep well of music and experience they have come together to deliver an enjoyable and unique concert experience.
