Hailed for mining a rare middle ground with a subtly insurgent slant by mixing Old World Europe with postmodern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with soulful grooves, and rock-n-roll trickery, the avant-chamber ensemble Tin Hat (formerly Tin Hat Trio) has tip-toed down a road-less-traveled and found itself the first member of an original American ethnic music genre of its own. A menagerie of country, blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, classical, and Eastern European folk influences combine to form "freewheeling chamber music" that is smart, exciting, and has been called "accessible, sexy, creepy, comic, and haunting."
