Real people and real experiences are the foundation of folk music and stories, and are codified in the lasting representations found in our oral histories. Acoustic trio Trillium-239 shares stories and songs of working life in the Northwest, beginning with American settlement of the West and ending with modern high-tech industries. Thoughtful music selections and interesting historical tidbits reflect the evolution of these workers’ experiences.
Trillium-239 is an acoustic music trio made up of Michelle Cameron on cello, Janet Humphrey on guitar, and Mary Hartman on guitar and banjo. Their educational backgrounds of music and science, combined with years of traveling and delving into Northwest history, have allowed them to absorb colorful local and regional lore and given them a unique perspective on the working experience both past and present. Humphrey and Hartman have played music together for more than 20 years, and Cameron joined the group when she moved to Richland twelve years ago. Formerly known as Humphrey, Hartman & Cameron, the trio has played at concerts, coffeehouses, and festivals throughout the Northwest.
Trillium-239 is based in Richland.
