Saturday, Aug. 15 at 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Trifolium is the first show in Chandler’s summer outdoor performance series. They will be bringing their diverse instrumentation and repertoire to a new venue, the stage at Farr’s Hill in Randolph.
Trifolium is made up of three outstanding local musicians: Andy Mueller (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals), Chloe Powell (fiddle, cello, vocals) and Justin Park (guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals).
They will perform on an outdoor stage in an open-air performance. The audience will be required to wear masks, and each audience group will be assigned a separate, appropriately socially-distanced seating area in which audience members can place lawn chairs or blankets.
In addition to growing in a wide variety of settings, producing beautiful flowers, and being Vermont’s state flower, trifolium pratense (a.k.a. red clover) is also a nitrogen fixer. This means that this hardy and beautiful plant improves the soil in which it grows. For all of these reasons, when local musicians Andy Mueller (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals), Chloe Powell (fiddle, cello, vocals) and Justin Park (guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, vocals) were looking for a name for their trio, the name Trifolium was a perfect fit. After all, their aim is to make music that evokes a sense of belonging, of joy and beauty, and of making things a bit better in the world.
Since their inception in 2017, these three talented musicians have been doing just that. Drawing musical influence from New England, Ireland, Appalachia, Quebec and the vast diversity of popular acoustic (and not so acoustic) music, they’ve played for local events, concert series, private parties, and weddings around central Vermont. They’re also well known for staying up way past their bedtimes following the musical muse around a hillside campfire under the moon and stars.
The show will also be live-streamed. Tickets are $10 per person for the live show or for the live-stream. Tickets are limited to the allowable number of audience members designated by the state.
