Barry Phillips

TRĂ…D. is a musical journey to Sweden, Norway and back again to California from the bow of world-renowned cellist Barry Phillips.

TRĂ…D. offers traditional Scandinavian fiddle tunes as well as new compositions in a "modern traditional" style, set in sometimes lush harmonies, sometimes energetic rhythms, but always captivating performances.

Joining Barry on this all-instrumental journey is Olof Johansson (Sweden's first nyckelharpa national champion and founding member of the Swedish band Väsen) and from Värmland, Sweden is fiddle virtuoso Olof Göthlin.

TRĂ…D. features bowed string ensembles in textures of solo and duo cello, string trios and quartets and sometimes a little percussion and even pipe organ join in.

Barry Phillips has been musician. arranger and producer of many recordings of Celtic and American folk music on the Gourd label including Simple Gifts, Tree of Life and Music On The Mountain (instrumental arrangements of melodies of the American Shakers), Wondrous Love (instrumental versions of "Shape Note" tunes), and The World Turned Upside Down (Colonial American folk and classical) and his first solo release (2000) Cello. These recordings often explore the sometimes very fine line between "folk" and "classical" music.
