A few words about ensemble „Jonis“

In 1984 four brothers Trijoniai, sons of a countrified musician, came to live in Siauliai and with a few cousins began to play Lithuanian country music made-up all by themselves. Three years later the first album showed and brothers’ songs became popular very quickly. Group began to travel throughout Lithuania and now probably there isn’t any small town or countryside which wouldn’t be visited by “Jonis”. During all these years 21 audio and 2 video albums showed. “Jonis” participated in various folk and country music festivals in Lithuania and abroad, visited USA, Germany and Finland with solo concerts. In autumn 1994, musicians of the group established musical club - tavern “Juone pastuoge". Currently the group consists of 6 members. They sing songs of theirs own making and instrumental pieces, Lithuanian folk’s arranged songs and works of foreign composers. All songs are performed in bluegrass style and features that are peculiar only to this ensemble. Musicians play only live music, therefore they are frequently invited to play in various evenings, clubs and other events, where the group can show the lilting solo concert.
