1. Tin Hat
Date: Monday, November 1, 2010
Venue: Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street, New York, NY 10012, Phone: 212- 505-3474)
Genre: American Music/contemporary/nu folk/avant pop
Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat from San Francisco makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century. Garnering widespread critical acclaim for its six CDs, the group has also earned high marks for their captivating performances. Tin Hat’s international audiences have grown over the years through its many concert tours in the United States and Europe. Hailed by the press for “interweaving Old World Europe with post- modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves” (The New York Press), the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device.
