From Provo to Ogden and beyond, bands are playing in house concerts, live venues and local record labels are making them available to the public. RadioWest brings some of the newest and the best bands into the studio to talk about and to play their music live.

Local Music: 3hattrio

L-R: 3hattrio's Hal Cannon, Eli Wrankle, Greg Istock

What do you get if you cross a cowboy singer, a Caribbean percussionist and a classical violinist? Well, if it happens in Virgin, Utah, folklorist and musician Hal Cannon says you get a new kind of Western music. He’s the cowboy singer and 1/3 of 3hattrio. They’ve just released their third album, and Monday, he joins us along with career musician Greg Istock and 19-year-old Eli Wrankle to explain why they say the West was ready for a new genre and how they began creating “desert music.”
