Tin Hat Trio

tango // eastern european folk // bluegrass

The group describes themselves aptly: “music for the shotgun wedding of Astor Piazzolla and Django Reinhardt with Charles Ives as the flower girl.” These three skilled musicians studied at schools including the Oberlin Conservatory, Peabody Conservatory, and the Hartt School of Music, and have worked with Phillip Glass, Bill Frisell, Tom Waits, even Mixmaster Mike and Tipsy! In essence, you’ve got learned musicians that create impressive music that’s technically meaty and simultaneously fun &#8211 mixing together elements of piano, violin, dobro, drum set, and tuba. They’ve released four discs now, my selections below are from their debut and 3rd, coming off the eclectic Ropeadope Records label.
An earthy concoction of outdoor music: tango, bluegrass, and chamber jazz.
