Welcome to the De Parys Trio's Website

Next concert - April 25th - St Albans more...

The De Parys Trio comprises: Martin Hughes - Violin; Jill Hughes - Flute; and Eric Hill - Guitar. You will see from the individual biographical notes that their combined musical experience embraces many avenues, and this depth is evident in their recorded performances.

Sir Robert de Parys is said to have lived in the twelfth century and is thought to have founded a school and hospital in Bedford. Unsurprisingly, the history is not terribly clear, but, modern-day De Parys Avenue is a wide thoroughfare in Bedford and home to Bedford School where we all hold music appointments. It is one of Britain’s finest independent schools with a huge music tradition

Quite simply, we wanted to enjoy making music with a slightly different combination of instruments, and we thought, “what better than a flute, violin and guitar trio”!
