The New Yorker has described Tin Hat as “a soundtrack for the kind of puzzling dream which leaves you sitting awake in the middle of the night.” In the words of popmatters.com, their style “is like the union of a classical chamber quartet and a jazz-fusion group: elegant, technically uncompromising, and at times blistering in its fret-burning.” Everyone in the group is a great player – Carla Kihlstedt on violin and vocals, Mark Orton on guitar and dobro, Berkeley’s Ben Goldberg on clarinets, and Oakland’s Rob Reich on accordion and piano – and they’re also accomplished composers and riveting performers.
