bandfoto_4Chris & Norbert are the fundament of the band Trianam. They perform as a duo or with other musicians – Lisi on the fiddle and Rudi on the percussions.

Trianam were formed in 2001 when Norbert & Chris joined forces to showcase their talent and passion for Irish music. Both were already accomplished musicians in their own right.

They first performed as Trianam in Ireland in 2004, playing the length and breadth of the country. They have continued to return to Ireland regularly at the invite of fellow musicians and a very receptive Irish audience. Based in Salzburg,Trianam are constantly on the go – relentlessly touring Austria, Germany, Swizerland, Slovenia, Italy and of course Ireland.

In June 2005, Trianam recorded their first CD ‘A short trip’. In the same year, they made a roadmovie of their tour of Ireland. A live album followed in 2007 “One 4 the road” – recorded live in an Irish pub. 2009 saw the release of the long awaited studio album ‘Lines to Erin’ a CD which included Trianam’s self written tunes and songs. Their acclaimed song and crowd favourite “Back to Ireland” is one of the many stand out tracks on the album. In 2013 they released a new album “Folk Ballads – On the Rocks” with a lot of traditionals and self composed songs.

Today Trianam’s unique sound continues to win new audiences.
