On a darkened hilltop above a grassy, windswept plain, in the creaking attic of an ancient clapboard house, Tin Hat Trio spins out rustic, mournful chamber music to old ghosts, dust-coated mice and anyone patient enough to listen. Using a variety of acoustic instruments (mainly guitar, violin, and accordion), the band evokes haunted memories of forgotten musical styles: bluegrass, flamenco, Gypsy jazz and classical Eastern European waltzes are all woven into their evocative mix. With so many ideas flourishing, these compositions should run longer and delve deeper; most ignite a flickering spark but never stoke it enough to let it truly burn.
