Formed in 2019, it features Kate Bevan-Baker on violin and vocals, Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin on concertina, and Martine Billette on piano.

Showcasing three transatlantic soundscapes, Trílangue performs compositions from the harping and piping traditions of Ireland and Scotland, waltzes and waltz clogs from rural Québec, as well as traditional dance tunes from all three cultures.

Music teachers, scholars, recording artists, and composers, Kate Bevan-Baker, Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin and Martine Billette bring a formidable elan of talent and creativity to Trílangue. As a classical violinist and Celtic fiddler, Kate Bevan-Baker, a Newfoundlander with Scottish roots, has represented Canada on the world stage for over a decade. A composer, dancer and pianist who grew up in a prominent Québécois musical family, Martine Billette has been at the cutting edge of traditional music in Canada since the 1990s. Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin is a fifth-generation concertina player and an uilleann piper from Clare, Ireland’s ‘mecca’ of traditional music.
