Lucie Hendry Trio [SCO/DK]
Vi glæder os til at byde denne nyskabende trio velkomne. Musikken er en fusion mellem traditionel musik og moderne jazz.
Scottish lever harpist Lucie Hendry is taking the folk music scene by storm with her innovative
collaboration alongside Danish jazz musicians, Dennis Iversen on electric guitar and Christoffer
Skovhus on drums.
Lucie Hendry, an upcoming harpist in the world of Scottish folk music, has joined forces with her
Danish counterparts to create a captivating fusion of traditional Scottish folk with contemporary jazz
influences, inspired by her time living in Denmark since 2021. The Lucie Hendry Trio skilfully blends
uplifting melodies, unexpected rhythms, and intricate musical textures to offer a fresh interpretation
of folk music. Each member of the trio contributes their unique musical style, resulting in an
ambient, electronic, and melodic journey that will evoke a wide range of emotions.
The trio’s synergy culminated in Lucie Hendry’s debut solo album, Land of Eden, which was released
in June 2023. Recorded by the trio, the album has been met with widespread acclaim and they
embarked on a tour in Denmark with performances at renowned festivals such as Godtfolk Festival,
Aarhus and Copenhagen Jazz Festival. In October 2023, the trio ventured to Scotland and played
ten concerts around the country while delivering masterclasses at prestigious institutes: the Royal
Conservatoire of Scotland and the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music. They are set to
play at Celtic Connections 2024 alongside roots band, Low Lily, and Grammy award winner, Alison
Brown. Notably, music from Land of Eden has received airplay on national radio in both the UK and
Denmark, featuring on stations such as BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, and DR P8.
Dedicated to advancing and sharing harp music, Lucie is rapidly making a name for herself in the
global harp community. She was a finalist in the BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Musician of
the Year 2021 competition, and is now nominated for ‘Up and Coming Artist of the Year’ at the 2023
Scots Trad Music Awards.

different genres can intertwine with such great effect is a tribute to the hard work of
all three musicians’ – Caledon Radio
