Loved working with Mom and Scott they are profession and deeply caring people. We had just lost our Mom and she worked closely with me on a song selection list and music for her funeral service. It was beautiful and an amazing celebration of Mom’s life. I am so thankful they we part of it. I would highly recommend them. And I would use them again. Lovely playing and beautiful voices.
Response from Trillium:
Lori - I'm grateful that our music helped you and your family towards the closure you needed at this time. Thank you for your kind words ~ Trillium -- Mim Eichmann & Scott Sedlacek
We couldn't have asked for more from this group. These are some seriously talented and engaging artists. Their service came at a very reasonable price, they were easy to communicate with, and adapted well to a unique setting. Thank you, Trillium.

What to Expect
In many ways, Trillium is a folk group which appeals to people who think that they really don't like folk music ... as well as those who do! Our extensive, eclectic repertoire ranges from Celtic to bluegrass to ragtime to swing, moving easily from one genre to the next, taking our audience along with us. Most of our tunes are trad/anon or public domain, both instrumentals and vocals, some cover tunes, some singer/songwriter, but all of our arrangements reflect our collective creative energy and the extraordinary playing styles of four very accomplished musicians.
We've recorded three cds: "Over the Waterfall" (2006), "The Moody Leprechaun (2007) and "Crossing the Stream" (2009), many tracks from which have been played on folk and Celtic radio programs throughout the U.S. and Canada. We've also been broadcast live on NPR stations on many occasions as well.
