3 Triúr (In Search of Musical Form) is a documentary on the ongoing collaboration

between three of Ireland’s most distinguished musicians – Peadar Ó Riada, Martin Hayes &

Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh – in an intimate portrait of ‘the act and art of making music.’

It’s rare for musicians of this calibre to allow a filmmaker such extensive access to the

intimate, private, often painful creative process, but that’s exactly what they’ve agreed to

do for this documentary: an incredible opportunity to view the tradition from three unique

perspectives and generations. The musicality of the documentary is complemented by an

intimate, personal dimension, given the close bonds that have have grown steadily

between the three as they swap stories, thoughts, ideas and tunes in a swirling exploration

of the creative process that journeys to the ‘heart of our music’.
