Hard Road Trio - 5/9/20
Hard Road Trio - 5/9/20
Steve Smith, Anne Luna and Chris Sanders are The Hard Road Trio, original southwestern acoustic music at the crossroads of Roots and Bluegrass. Where The Trio sound is even greater than the sum of these parts:
PERFECT HARMONIES, STUNNING MANDOLIN PLAYING AND AWARD-WINNING SONGWRITING.
Life-long musicians Steve Smith (vocals, mandolin, mandola, and guitar) and Chris Sanders (vocals and guitar) are joined by emerging artist Anne Luna (vocals and bass), capturing audiences across the country with the depth of their songwriting and the power of their distinctive voices. Their music grows from Steve’s love of bluegrass rooted in his native Virginia, the beauty of choral singing ever-present in Chris’ Minnesota childhood and the tradition of music in Anne’s New Mexico family. Together, their Southwestern blend of Roots and Bluegrass music provides a unique heartbeat and lilt underscored by Anne’s driving and elegant bass. Their “perfect harmonies” (Audiophilereview.com) are “…delivered with a sense of connection and joy, both in the music and in sharing of it.” (Kerry Dexter, Wandering Educators)
Appearances by the Trio include Tucson’s Desert Bluegrass Festival, Pickin’ in the Pines, Bighorn Mountain Festival, Swallow Hill in Denver, Durango Bluegrass Meltdown, Black Rose Acoustic Society, Wildflower Concerts, Albuquerque Folkfest, Berkeley’s Freight and Salvage, Rice Festival, and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass as well as an official showcase at FAR West in Oct. ’12. In The Hard Road Trio + Bill Evans, The Trio joins forces with an extraordinary banjo player (and Steve’s former Cloud Valley band mate) – shows in 2013 included the Mammoth and Santa Fe Bluegrass festivals and High Mountain Hay Fever in CO. Steve has also played and recorded with Jim Hurst, Missy Raines and the Alan Munde Gazette. Steve, Chris and Anne continue to be in demand as teachers and clinicians (Camp Bluegrass, HCamp, California Coast Music Camp, Kaufman’s Acoustic Kamp and Zoukfest).
