TRÚ is a folk trio from Northern Ireland. Inspired by the Ulster song tradition they create music drawing on an eclectic musical heritage. From Gaelic sean nós to Appalachian ballads to Scots poetry, the band’s song selection relies on the melodic and lyrical calibre of songs that stand the test of time.

TRÚ is Dónal Kearney, Zach Trouton and Michael Mormeca, all seasoned artists in their own right, with distinct backgrounds; Irish nationalist, Ulster-Scots, and British-Ukranian. Their different upbringings enhance the trio’s musical conversation as they are united by a passionate appreciation of the folk material they perform.

Their mesmerising live show has exposed TRÚ’s vulnerability in performance, the craft of their arrangements and the sheer power of their storytelling. There is nothing traditional about TRÚ except the songs themselves.
