The Stookey Trio love traditional British tunes, as well as Eastern European and circle dance. The music is moulded through collaboration to breathe new life into old tunes: the Trio value both the traditional and the spontaneous, with moments of improvisation. The melodies are wrapped around groove and around each player’s personal history. Each musician brings decades of love of traditional music and dance so the Trio play together from the heart, drawing on the different folk traditions. The Stookey Trio play as a small gigging, travelling band, for festivals and for fun; they also play as part of a popular ceilidh band, Stookey Blue, which plays in and around Norwich.
