LISTEN: A Look Back at Tin Hat Trio

Here’s a little Throwback Thursday for you: In the late ’90s, Carla Kihlstedt, Mark Orton, and Rob Burger former Tin Hat Trio, an undefinable instrumental trio that explored the sounds of Eastern Europe and the moods of Ennio Morricone with violin, piano, accordion, guitar, and the help of guests like Tom Waits and Willie Nelson. Their 2002 album, The Rodeo Eroded, remains stunning in its vivid imagination and incisive playing. Give it a listen, and see Kihlstedt perform with ICE at Big Ears 2019.
