Triskellion

Flute/Irish Whistle, Celtic Harp and Violin

Triskellion 2017

Rebecca Blair (Celtic harp), Rosie Carver (violin) and Michelle Carlisle (flutes/whistles/vocals) take you on a mystical trip through the Celtic Isles - Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales, with jigs, reels, laments and ballads. To add a special touch for other occasions, our trio also offers light classical music.  We perform for concerts as well as weddings, corporate events, parties, memorials and other special occasions.  Be it on stage or in the background, our music is enchanting. Like the three-sided Celtic knot called the “Triskellion”, this group features three ladies; classic and elegant.

What people are saying about Triskellion:

Private parties / Corporate events:

"The music was lovely and we had so many compliments from employees on the beautiful music. It really helped to make the 15th Annual Employee Recognition Awards Evening special."- Beckett Zeller, Human Resources Advisor, Township of Langley

“We were truly delighted to have Triskellion provide background music at a retirement reception for one of our team at the Langley Centennial Museum.  So gifted and talented Rebecca and Michelle are . . . they contributed to the overall ambiance of our event. The duet made it a special and memorable evening for our honoured retiree and her guests. I would love to hear them play as a trio and as a focal point of an event. Even through the chatter of guests I could tell they are extraordinary musicians.”   - Peter Tulumello, Cultural Services Manager at Langley Centennial Museum


"The ladies of Triskellion were professional and they played music that was suitable for the setting. The performance was enchanting and delightful. Their traditional and extensive repertoire offered me the opportunity to customize my event and make it a success.  I will definitely contact them for future performances." - Becky Chen, Vancouver Templeton New Century Lions

 

"As chair of the Heart of The Matter, our fundraiser in New Westminster, we hired the ladies of Triskellion to provide us with background music during the evening. They were exceptional and they delighted and entertained everyone. They are true professionals and I would recommend them to anyone needing a great musical trio!" - Roy Prevost, Chairperson of Heart of The Matter



Weddings:

"We hired Triskellion to play at at our wedding ceremony and they were wonderful. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. Michelle was very helpful in communicating with us beforehand to ensure it all ran smoothly.  On the day, they played beautifully and were able to roll with the punches when the ceremony went slightly differently than planned.  Triskellion certainly added something special to our wedding day.
I highly recommend you and your fellow musicians."
- Tara & Matt, Bride and Groom

 

"When arranging our daughter's wedding, we wanted music for the ceremony that reflected the mood of the moment, and Triskellion skillfully provided that specific gift for us. Their music was beautiful & soul touching...just perfect in every way! Ours and the groom's family felt that the music they played added that special touch for the wedding that was priceless. Our guests were entertained to many more delightful songs afterwards that were a real treat, and many commented on how lovely Michelle, Rebecca & Rosie played. We are so grateful to Triskellion and would highly recommend them for any event...especially something as personal as a wedding." - Parents of the Bride
