Sun Dogs


The music of Snowflake Trio - flute player, singer and composer Nuala Kennedy, Norwegian accordionist Frode Haltli and fiddle player Vegar Vårdal - encompasses both a fine-boned delicacy and a rugged spontaneity.

To best capture its spirit, they recorded a live album, featuring carefully selected pieces of traditional music from Norway and Ireland and interwoven them with freely improvised sections and newly composed melodies.

Snowflake Trio was founded in Dundalk, Ireland in 2009 when they came together as part of a larger project organised by Louth Contemporary Music Society. Building on an immediate musical rapport, they have continued to collaborate and develop our repertoire; touring in Norway and Ireland as well as performing at international music festivals such as Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Celtic Colours Festival in Canada and Telemark Festival in Norway.


"The energy fuelling some exceptional recent collaborations between Irish, Scottish and Nordic musicians is at the heart of this beautiful collection from Snowflake Trio...A treasure trove." - **** The Irish Times

"Snowflake Trio's first album has delicate, intricate playing but plenty of grit and earthiness when it fits. The stitching together of many-faceted parts into impressively cohesive whole musical pieces is key to its brilliance. Sun Dogs contains a wealth of diverse, nourishing music and is an all-round thing of beauty." - Folk Radio
