Live at Zion 3hattrio CD

Hal performs and records with 3hattrio, 
hailing from Zion Canyon in Southern Utah. Hal sings, plays banjo and guitar. Greg Istock plays acoustic bass and foot percussion. He has a Caribbean music background and sings in a haunting and soulful style. Eli Wrankle, a classically trained violinist who studies  at Southern Utah University and comes from a family of artists. 
Dark Desert Night 3Hattrio
If you ask most people what Western music is you are likely to hear the response, cowboys and Indians. 3hattrio has great respect for these music’s but they also think there is more to the West and its music. Musicians like to identify with things larger than themselves. Music is often identified with place, like the Delta and its blues or mountain music of Appalachia. It can even be a city’s music like New Orleans, Austin or Bakersfield. In the case of the 3hattrio inspiration comes from the deserts of southern Utah, thus,  American Desert Music. 

Lost Sessions 3hattrio CD
Host Gary Holt and co-host Bobbi Jean Bell look forward to chatting with HAL CANNON, making his first appearance on CAMPFIRE CAFE. We'll be playing music from 3hattrio's albums: LIVE AT ZION, DARK DESERT NIGHT, AND LOST SESSIONS.

Hosts Jim Christina and Bobbi Jean Bell look forward to each new title from the pen of PEGGY CHAMBERS and their time together with her in the "guest chair." What we didn't know is how much she enjoys being with us! Here's what Peggy has to say about being a guest on our show! 

2021: Expect the Unexpected – The Writer’s Block!

 This Thursday is April Fools Day!  I don’t know how you celebrate this obscure holiday (or if you do) but I have a unique way of doing it.  I interview on LA Talk Radio, The Writer’s Block – on April Fools Day The Writer’s Block | LA Talk Radio.  How appropriate.

Let me say the fool here is me, not the hosts, Jim Christina and Bobbi Jean Bell. They are always fun to talk to and great listeners. I was given their link several years ago and nervously approached them. They interview writers (Jim is one himself) and they love literature. Internet radio is an interesting idea to us old folks, but it has a large following. I try not to think about how many people may be listening in or I’ll freeze up and forget what I’m saying! Sometimes I do that anyway.  But Jim and Bobbi Jean always put me at ease, and it is an enjoyable time.  I’ve never met these people face to face, but we’ve become friends on the internet, and I enjoy my time with them.
