The trio explores an array of repertoire with a focus on contemporary music, performing original works for guitar trio ranging from Anton Diabelli to Per Nørgård and Beat Furrer, as well as many of their own arrangements and premieres of new works.
Since its inception in 2016 the ensemble has performed in some of the most prestigious venues in the country, including Wigmore Hall, the Barbican and The National Portrait Gallery, and for The Greenwich Early Music Festival.
