The Mae Trio are Maggie Rigby (banjo, ukulele, guitar and vocals), sister Elsie Rigby (violin, ukulele and vocals and Anita Hillman (cello, bass and vocals).
Their debut album, Housewarming, released in 2013 features songs that the trio had written before they even finished school, earning them the Folk Alliance Australia Youth Award and NFSA Folk Recording of the Year, and carried them on a bigger wave than they could ever have imagined.
Leaving behind two half finished university degrees and one steady primary school teaching job the Trio took to the road for the last two years touring Australia, Canada, USA and Europe with performances at the Hydro Stadium at Celtic Connection, Glasgow, Americana Folk Festival, Nashville, Cambridge Folk Festival, UK Edmonton Folk Festival, Canada, and Port Fairy and National Folk Festivals, Australia.
