JP Trio has toured Sweden with the "American folk tones" summer program since 2012. In 2017 we return with a renewed program.
Our repertoire is taken from the American folk tradition and the program stretches from the early spiritual songs to more contemporary compositions. The arrangements are varied with song, guitar, cello, banjo, mandolin, and percussion. Every year our repertoire grows as we come up with new arrangements on old songs. Watch our videos for a little taste of how we sound!
