Trio Paradis - Jacquelyn Bevan (piano), Lisa Betteridge  (violin) & Linda Stocks (cello) - are a  classical piano trio who perform Café Concerts at community venues across Somerset and Wiltshire: informal monthly daytime events, with music in a variety of styles, brought together in a themed programme.

At every event there is a café, serving  home-made cakes, open half an hour or more before the concert starts (at Warminster Athenaeum the café opens after the concert) - a chance to chat with friends and make new ones.

Café Concerts are free with donations invited so everyone can attend, and our audience members often get involved by reading a poem, baking a cake or helping to run the café.

Booking is not essential, but an RVSP via the event page is much appreciated as it helps us to plan. Turn up early to be sure of best seats. In church venues it might be an idea to bring a cushion!


At the end of each Café Concert there is a retiring collection with pay-what-you-feel donations invited.  We play regularly in local care homes; and any surplus from concert donations is used to subsidise the cost of these events.

Trio Paradis are in the process of becoming a charity -  a not-for-profit collective of professional musicians whose aim is to bring high quality live music and multi-arts events to new audiences, in particular anyone with limited access to live performance. These include carers, people living in rural communities, those on a low income and anyone without access to transort to attend evening events.

Trio Paradis are passionate about bringing the music of female composers - and other under-performed composers - to a wider audience, and we include works by women composers in virtually every one of our concerts. Our annual March programme marks International Women's Day, consisting exclusively of music by female composers.

We also play traditional  classical concerts and are available to play at weddings, parties and other occasions. We can put together a tailor-made programme for your event. Email us to enquire. Email
