"The group blends elements of jazz, folk and classical chamber music to create unique, yet often eerie compositions that seem like the perfect movie score." Billboard Magazine

"Their haunting and strangely familiar music... is a soundtrack for the kind of puzzling dream which leaves you sitting awake in the middle of the night..." The New Yorker

Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century. Garnering widespread critical acclaim for four CDs recorded between 1999 and 2004 as Tin Hat Trio, the group has also earned high marks for their captivating performances, sometimes including original soundtracks for classic silent film animation in Russia. 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.

In 2005, the group became a quartet featuring violinist/vocalist Carla Kihlstedt and guitarist Mark Orton.

Don't miss your chance to see these world-class musicians perform their symphony hall worthy instrumentals in our intimate theater!
