Award-winning Canadian group ViVA Trio have released their stunning first foray into folk music with a new single, “Solstice Jig”.
As the latest preview of their forthcoming concept album, “Solstice Jig” offers a light-hearted, upbeat tune featuring star violinist Vasil Popadiuk alongside Trio members Anna Bateman, Erin Fisher, and Katya Tchoubar. Inspired by Irish jigs, Enya, as well as a series of Canadian and Celtic folk artists, the song lilts with pagan, celtic magic and nature-inspired lyrics.
“We’re dipping our toes into the deep traditions of folk music, and loving it!” Anna shares.
“‘Solstice Jig’ is a more let-your-hair-loose kind of track for us,” Erin adds.
“This song is truly written as a celebration of the new season, and it’s time to dance baby!” Katya continues.
ViVA Trio’s three powerful sopranos — Anna, Erin, and Katya — each have extensive solo performance backgrounds that take audience’s breaths away. Put them together, and their combined forces soar as pure thrill and magic!
