In the Mix
We thoroughly enjoyed our Heyde Center for the Arts show, where we were warmly welcomed by both local Chippewa Falls WI folks and our Twin Cities friends who made the journey to be with us in this beautifully restored theater. Many thanks to Ann Hansen (Author and all around great person) and Debra Johnson (Executive Director of the CVCA) for all of your help in making this event happen. Thanks as well to Stephanie Elkins, host of WPR's Simply Folk, for introducing her listeners to treVeld. We'd love to come back for another Heyde show, so if you're so motivated, please help us spread Wisconsin treVeld consciousness by requesting our music be played on Simply Folk, which you can do here - Simply Folk Request Line. Of course it wouldn't hurt to also drop Debra Johnson a hint that you'd like to see us return to the Heyde.
"What a fabulous show! You three sound great on CD, but in live performance you're amazing. The music is so refreshingly different and engaging - who would've thought you could put those instruments together in the hands of Midwesterners and come up with such great stuff!
The coolest thing for me is the uniqueness and attractiveness of the sound - There's no shortage of pop/country/folk guitar players and classical strings musicians out there; you three have something different that is really lovely!
My wish and hope for TreVeld is that you continue to build a name, a following, and a repertoire, and that we can welcome you back to the Heyde Center again with a full house! (And then, of course, you will leave for a world tour and wow the crowned heads of Europe, the tribal chiefs of Africa, the moguls and Mongols of Asia, finally to return to play Carnegie Hall . .. . )"

We had a great time performing on WCCO Television's Saturday Morning Show in March, which we did as a promotion for our Music Under Glass performance at the McNeely Conservatory in Como Park. The Conservatory show was a wonderful happening. There were a record number of people in attendance for this great event and we much enjoyed absorbing the beauty and moisture of the sunken garden space as we shared our music. Sunset on that clear day made for an amazing atmosphere inside the garden. We're hoping to return for this music series next year.
. . .
We're glad to report that our second recording project is coming along nicely as we continue to make good progress towards its completion. This is our third run at this project, which we trust will be the final charm! Our tentative working title for treVeld II is Falling, which will contain 15 of our newest works. We're aiming for a 2013 release, so stay tuned. Thanks again to all who've been patiently waiting for us to offer up our next recording. Your continued patience and support are greatly appreciated!

If you like what you hear… we'd love your help in spreading the word about treVeld. In addition to food and drink venues, we also enjoy performing for concerts, festivals, weddings and private events. We continue to meet wonderful people on our musical adventures, many of whom have been incredibly supportive and encouraging. The majority of our performing schedule is manifest via personal connections and referrals from those who like our music and tell others. Thank you to the many that have already helped us along this path!
Facebook is a good place to connect with treVeld. Email and telephone are very much encouraged as well.

Sharing the love from friends of treVeld . . .
"Thank you to all of you for providing your wonderful music! I have to pass on what I heard after you played Buffalo Skies - I was standing in the back of the room, and when the song was done the momentary silence of the crowd was broken as the man sitting at the table next to me let out a quiet "Wow"! That pretty much sums up that song. I cannot believe the emotion you put into that tune."
"We heard you at the Three Rivers Valentine event at Richardson park. We loved your music!"
"My wife wrote on Facebook that it was "The Best Valentine's Ever!". High praise; it was our 37th Valentine's Day. Thanks gentlemen."
"We loved having you! You guys make beautiful music."
"My mother, a few of her friends, and I saw you all play at Erte this past weekend on Saturday. We bought two of your CD's and absolutely love the tracks. I lived in Ireland for 6 months last year studying abroad and miss the live music - your band really reminded me of what I was so used to hearing regularly in Ireland. I really enjoy listening to your music!!"
"I was listening to Pandora at work, and immediately loved your sound when "Square Not" began playing. I looked up your bio which led me to your website. Shame I live in WA, but at least I am aware of your presence now. I look forward to listening and sharing."
"We've been telling people about tonight for weeks, and treVeld was even better than I promised, which was pretty high stuff to begin with. Your hearts were in your fingers tonight and they flowed out in the sweet, sweet music."
"Beautiful setting and beautiful music! Wow!"
"Bill , Dustin & Phillip you guys knocked it out park, last night, at Mendoberri. Thank you."
"Really enjoyed the performance at Como's Music Under Glass!"
"Saw you on WCCO this morning. Love love the music."
"Great show! thanks for treVeld-ing to Chippewa Falls, WI"
