American Folk Music in Perfect

Alignment & Harmony

“…with Begley and Wolcott flanking [Kate]…there was a giant, multi-pronged Emersonian celestial tuning fork on stage…it put light in one’s heart."   

- Colin McEnroe


IN TRINE is a musical collaboration between Kate Callahan, Cynthia Wolcott, and Michelle Begley. After ten years of singing under various names, the trio has arrived at their forever name: an astrological reference to harmony and alignment. Michelle, Cynthia and Kate think of themselves as imperfectly optimistic and embrace their inner charm. IN TRINE will release their 1st album (and Kate’s 5th) in the summer of 2022. The album, titled "Lay It Down" features Stephen Murphy’s production and instrumental work, Begley and Wolcott's vocal arrangements, along with jazz percussionist Ed Fast. The album started as a pandemic passion project between Callahan and Murphy and is a welcome reprieve for anyone who needs a deep breath.


Michelle is the Education Programs Director for the American Mural Project and has extensive experience in the arts as a performer, conductor, administrator and teaching artist, developing and leading creative programs for people of all ages. She sings regularly with a variety of small and large choral groups, is blissed out when singing with her kids and friends and has delighted in trio singing with Kate and Cynthia for the last 10 years!

Cynthia enjoys doing many different things in her life; one of her absolute favorites is singing with these two women. She helped raise four truly good humans, leads lots of yoga and mindful movement classes, helps folks lead their most fulfilled lives, and hosts concerts in her yard. Connecting with others nourishes her soul.

Kate is digging in her heels as she completes her first year teaching English in the public school system, while getting a Master’s in Literacy, running her college essay coaching business, and recording her 5th album. She served as Connecticut’s 16th State Troubadour 2016-18, when she began leading a vocal empowerment program for the women at York Correctional Institution. She has been named CT’s Best Singer-Songwriter 2013, Hartford’s Best Traditional/Folk Artist 2019, and the Greater Hartford Arts Council’s United Arts Campaign Artist of the Year 2016.

"Kate Callahan performed at Russell Library in Middletown this past June (2018) to a happy crowd of listeners! Her stories of being the Connecticut State Troubadour, the variety of music and the quality of the musicians that she brought with her kept every one of our patrons engaged and thoroughly fulfilled.  While Kate's voice is strong and delightful, the singing mastery of Cynthia Wolcott and Michelle Begley sent some songs to a new level of enjoyments.  Atticus Kelly on piano with the trio during Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen was an experience not to be missed!"
