With their roots firmly planted in folk tradition, Australian award-winning band The Mae Trio are a breath of fresh air on the contemporary folk scene. Incorporating stellar three-part harmonies, complex arrangements and lyrical sophistication, these youngsters are on a rapid rise.

Recipients of the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award, the prestigious Maton Class Act Award and the NFSA Folk Recording of the Year for their debut album Housewarming, The Mae Trio have made a colourful splash globally including international performances from Celtic Connections to Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, MIDEM Festival in Cannes and Americana Festival in Nashville, not to mention a string of shows at Australia’s leading festivals from Port Fairy Folk Festival to Blue Mountains Music Festival.

Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukuleles, guitar, marimba and vocals), Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals) and Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals) started playing together in 2011, and the last year has seen the band burst onto the international scene. Their debut album Housewarming was produced by Luke Plumb of Shooglenifty and features percussionist extraordinaire James Mackintosh also of Shooglenifty fame.

It is a rare treat to experience such unique instrumentation and spine-tingling harmonies, and The Mae Trio promises bucket loads of both.

“The Mae Trio has made a meteoric mark on the national acoustic music scene” - Rhythms

“they belied their apparent youth with some fine songs and dry wit”  - Americana UK

“The Mae Trio were easily the break-out act at Folk Alliance”  - The Bluegrass Situation

“A favourite on the Aussie folk scene… definitely a trio to keep an eye and an ear (or two) out for”  - Songlines UK
