All the Scents of the Earth

Trio Flamme performs Carita Holmström’s songs about our life on earth. Songs of love and longing as well as hymns to nature alternate with songs of sorrow, flight and that there is always someone who cleans up after every war. In the program are gems from Holmström’s archive of songs from the 70’s up to new songs written for Trio Flamme. On stage: Trio Flamme (vocals and piano), Esko Grundström (contrabass and accordion) and Carita Holmström herself (piano, guitar and vocals).

Trio Flamme (Emilie Adolfsson, Daniela Fogelholm and Minna Nyberg) specializes in Finnish-Swedish theatre music. The trio has toured Finland and Sweden and has produced several concert programs featuring composers such as Erna Tauro and Bengt Ahlfors. To name a few: Erna Tauro – Känslornas tonsättare, Tauro & Ahlfors – Visor för full hals och FLAMME + BEBBE = SANT!. Trio Flamme received the Erna Tauro Award in 2020 for their many years of performing Finnish-Swedish theatre songs. The members of the trio all work as professional musicians and stage artists and are appreciated for their versatility.
