    3hattrio in Concert

    Saturday September 23, 2017 / 4 – 6 pm

    If you ask most people what Western music is you are likely to hear the response, Cowboys and Indians. 3hattrio has great respect for this music but they also think there is more to the West. Music is often identified with place, like the Delta and its blues or mountain music of Appalachia. In the case of the 3hattrio, inspiration comes from the deserts of southern Utah, thus, Desert Music of the Greater West. Join us for an evening of music that is spacious, atmospheric, mirage-like, spiced with old-time cowboy, classical, jazz, and Caribbean overtones.
