3hattrio

The 3hattrio plays American Desert Music. Their aim is to create a new music which responds to the natural world of their sacred homeland near Zion National Park in Utah.  They also strive to acknowledge the cultural traditions of generations of people who have worked and lived on the deserts of the American southwest. The subject matter of the songs is often desert oriented, sometimes not. Mostly, they express the desert experientially from a daily-ness of watching light off distant mesas and hearing the way sound plays off sheer sandstone cliffs.  Then they play music. They don’t over- do it.

3hattrio’s  hails from Zion Canyon in Southern Utah and includes Hal Cannon who is a singer and plays banjo and guitar. He is also a cowboy music scholar. Greg Istock plays acoustic bass and foot percussion who has a Caribbean music background and sings in a haunting and soulful style. The third member is Eli Wrankle, a classically trained violinist who has started college this year at Southern Utah University and comes from a family of artists.

Their songs are mostly original and even their old-time cowboy and pioneer songs have an unusual twist. Living in the same isolated place, surrounded by an inspiring landscape of red cliffs is what makes this group thrive. Their first album, “Year One,” was hailed by Baxter Black as a “profundo Gregorian sagebrush chant”.  Since then they released a second CD to critical acclaim, “Dark Desert Night”.  Their most recent album “Solitaire,” came out last September.
