Silver City, NM – The traditional sounds of Estonia with a modern twist will be performed live on the Western New Mexico University campus, Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Trad.Attack!, an internationally popular and endlessly energetic trio, will rock Light Hall Theater beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Drawing inspiration from recordings of the great Estonian folk singers and instrumentalists, Trad.Attack! brings these traditions to the 21st century but also experiments with different styles and musical directions. Creating the perception that there are more than three people on stage, Trad.Attack! builds on ancient rhythms, fleshing out Estonian folk songs with acoustic 12-string guitar, drums, whistles, bagpipes, and Jew's harps; plucked instruments that produce one pitch with multiple overtones.

Band members and close friends Sandra (bagpipe), Jalmar (vocals) and Tõnu (trombone and drums) had each individually been engaged with the Estonian music scene for more than 15 years prior to forming Trad.Attack!, which began as an experiment.

Formed in 2014, the band has since released two albums, toured in 31 countries, and earned 14 music awards in Estonia.

Admission is $15 per person. Tickets can be purchased at Hunter Hall, in the Office of Cultural Affairs or online at wnmu.edu/culture. The event is sponsored by Lawley Toyota, WESTAF and National Endowment for the Arts, and the Western Institute of Lifelong Lerning (WILL).

For more information, contact the Office of Cultural Affairs at 575-538-6469.
