The Castlefield Trio is a compact energy cell of musical power whose unexpected turns and combinations electrify the familiar, audience-pleasing jazz and blues they play so well. Featuring torch heartbreaker Sarah LeMieux on vocals and guitar, the exuberantly joyful Joe Casillo on bass, and the groovy, mathematical Andy Chatfield on drums, the Castlefield Trio manages to be playfully classy; polished but daring. Debuting in March 2017, the trio performs original songs by Sarah LeMieux and Andy Chatfield, as well as carefully curated pop, jazz, blues, and rock covers, from The Police to Fleetwood Mac. Casillo's seasoned studio, theatrical, and session experience rounds out this award-winning trio - LeMieux's quintet has won the "Best Jazz" category in the Connecticut Music Awards three years in a row (2016, 2015, 2014); while Chatfield's quartet "Stanley Maxwell" won the "Best Jazz Band" category in the Hartford Advocate's "Grand Band Slam" three times (2010, 2009, 2007).
