Mark Orton PRESS ROOM
“In a just world, Willie Nelson’s tenderly plangent vocal and the tune’s ("Willow Weep for Me") pitch-perfect, tumbleweeds-tumbling-in-the-breeze arrangement by Tin Hat guitarist Mark Orton would resonate from radios across the country.”
“an all-encompassing American tableau with melodies both strange and beautiful.”
“Their haunting and strangely familiar music...is a soundtrack for the kind of puzzling dream which leaves you sitting awake in the middle of the night…"
—The New Yorker
“interweaving Old World Europe with post-modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves, the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device."
—The New York Press
“Mark Orton and his lap steel guitar played the stars out of heaven.”
