We, at Knollwood sportsman's club, were highly impressed with the performance of Trillium. We would have them back to our club anytime.
Eclectic/ Acoustic String Band
The eclectic/acoustic string band Trillium features traditional Celtic/Irish, acoustic swing, Dixieland, ragtime, Americana, and folk music on violin/mandolin, hammered dulcimer, guitar/banjo, acoustic bass and rousing vocals. Trillium was one of the two musical acts from Illinois selected to perform and showcase at the 2009 International Folk Alliance Convention in Memphis, TN. Trillium has released three CD'S with rave critical and popular reviews: "The Moody Leprechaun", "Over the Waterfall", and their most recent release "Crossing the Stream". Trillium is in demand throughout the Midwest for playing at clubs, cafes, major venue concerts, weddings and receptions, and festivals. The band is especially adept at teaching workshops on their various instruments and styles. Trillium band members are music professor from the University of Chicago Jonathan De Souza playing violin, mandolin and vocals, director of the Midwest School of Ballet Mim Eichmann on the hammered dulcimer and vocals, national fingerstyle guitar champion Ed Hall on guitar and banjo, and music professor from Columbia College Doug Lofstrom on acoustic bass.
