About Triboro

Triboro hails from the boroughs of New York, but looks beyond the Hudson, to other places and other times, for songs and inspiration. They are an acoustic vocal trio that applies fine three-part harmony to an eclectic mix of musical genres – Old-time, Carter family, Country, Western, Bluegrass and more. Triboro is Phyllis Elkind (Manhattan,) Don Friedman (Brooklyn) and Evy Mayer (the Bronx.) We love it when you sing along on the choruses.
