SLCene Suggests: 3hattrio at Ken Sanders Rare Books

by on November 5, 2014


3HATTRIO, KEN SANDERS RARE BOOKS, Thursday, Nov. 6, 7 p.m., $20

The 3hattrio will seriously challenge your idea of “folk music” with the sounds filling their new album, Year One. While the band members all live along the Virgin River in southwestern Utah and write songs inspired by the wild landscapes of the West, incorporating jazz, blues and classical styles, even touching on world music here and there. The remarkably diverse sound is fueled by the varying experiences of each of the trio. Hal Cannon plays some banjo and sings; you might have heard him previously playing with Red Rock Rondo or Deseret String Band, or producing radio and TV documentaries. Bass player Greg Istock is a painter and desert-lover who transplanted from Florida to Utah. And violinist Eli Wrankle is a 17-year-old with a classical background — he’s the concert master of the Hurricane High School Orchestra — with a knack for improvisation. The show at Ken Sanders Rare Books has limited seating, so swoop on tickets while you can.
