The first thing you will notice about our trio is that we can't count. Just kidding. Originally, we began with Rick Cassolino on jazz guitar and electric bass, Jim GIbb on banjo, and Janice Buckner on guitar and acoustic bass. Then along came Kate!
We couldn't resist Kate Levine's exquisite soprano voice and her provocative fiddle playing. Be it Cajun, Bluegrass or Jazz, we were sold on her talents and charm. Alas, the Trio became four!
What we love best about playing music together is the unique spin we give each song and the diversity of our repertoire. In concert we feature each artist and interweave harmonies and instrumentation to support our individual styles.
The result is a diverse pallet of music and an extensive repertoire that keeps us on our toes and delights audiences.
Multiple genres, from Blues and Country to Cajun, Pop, Rock, Original Songs and Hit Tunes make the NY Trio & Company exciting to hear. Our concerts are upbeat and interactive and we are grateful for the standing ovations we have received.
In addition to playing at parks, libraries, festivals, and community events, the ensemble is special in that we accommodate organizations on tight budgets. This way we are affordable for fundraisers, nursing homes, senior centers, and non-profit organizations.
