About this Event

Mollie O'Brien & Rich Moore

Mollie O'Brien & Rich Moore Mollie O'Brien and her husband, guitarist Rich Moore, have for nearly 30 years quietly made it their mission to find, mine and reinvent other artists' songs. They are geniuses at the craft of interpretation in the way that great singers, since the beginning of popular American music, have made the songs of their era their own. As songwriters they add their own tunes to the canon of American roots music they inhabit and show us they're completely at home with their musical selves. Grammy winner Mollie has long been known as a singer who doesn't recognize a lot of musical boundaries, and audiences love her fluid ability to make herself at home in any genre while never sacrificing the essence of the song she tackles. She is a singer at the very top of her game who's not afraid to take risks both vocally and in the material she chooses. Rich, while known to produce some of the funniest onstage running commentary, is also a powerhouse guitar player who can keep up with O'Brien's twists and turns from blues to traditional folk to jazz to rock and roll. He creates a band with just his guitar and, as a result, theirs is an equal partnership.

Their latest release is Love Runner on Remington Road Records.

3hattrio

3hattrio (three hat trio) 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 southern 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-think it. The music is spacious, atmospheric, mirage-like, spiced with old-time cowboy, classical, jazz, and Caribbean overtones.

Hal Cannon sings, plays banjo and guitar and writes many of the 3hattrio songs. He's been a practicing musician most of his life but also takes pride in his life as a folklorist, radio producer and scholar of cowboy lore. Greg Istock plays acoustic bass and foot percussion. He has a Caribbean music background and is an active visual artist. Eli Wrankle is a classically trained violinist and a student at Southern Utah University. He comes from a family of artists and joined the group when he was fifteen. Now twenty-one, he is the old soul of the group.

3hattrio made their European debut at Celtic Connections in 2017 to outstanding reviews. This Glasgow Scotland festival is the largest winter music festival in the world. They have been featured at the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering, the Moab Folk Festival and with original music and dance for Repertory Dance Theater. They will appear at 2018 Tønder Festival in Denmark. Mostly they play at home for their dogs and the occasional lizard, spider or Red Tailed Hawk.
