Trio Apaches

Mash Productions

LICMF 2017

Trio Apaches was officially formed by Matthew Trusler, Thomas Carroll and Ashley Wass at the 2012 Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival.


The Trio is named after an innovative and often controversial group of Parisian-based artists which formed around 1900.  Its members included the composers Ravel, Stravinsky and Manuel de Falla, as well as painters, poets and music critics of the day.

Founded by Ashley Wass and Matthew Trusler, Mash Productions is a production company that exists to bring ambitious and innovative projects to life.  Able to draw on long and varied careers within the music industry, we offer an unparalleled opportunity to realise diverse and exciting ideas.


We work closely with collaborators throughout the creative development process, helping to identify target audiences and channels of distribution, and to achieve artistic and financial objectives.

Over the course of twelve exciting events, spread across Lincolnshire, LICMF 2017 covers several themes, including the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's death, the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln Fair and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.


Alongside a series of traditional concerts there will be several innovative events which juxtapose artistic genres, including musical plays and performances integrating music and mime.
