Hal Cannon

Hal Cannon’s been preparing for this moment, the arrival of his first album, for his entire life. Granted, that preparation was perhaps unwitting, as he spent decades working as a folklorist, co-founding the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering and playing in long-running groups like the Deseret String Band and, more recently, Red Rock Rondo. “I’ve had the experience of being able to interview so many people, as a journalist really, working on the series ‘What’s In A Song?’ for NPR,” Cannon says. “I’ve been able to talk to lots of songwriters, lots of singers, lots of people who have something to say about a song. And it made me realize how magical a song can be in invoking so much more than just the poetry or the music. Somehow, when you put poetry and music together, you can evoke a time, you can evoke emotion in a way that’s sort of an extraordinary thing. To me, it’s a pathway to magic.” Hal Cannon w/Teresa Jordan The State Room 638 S. State Saturday, Feb. 12 8 p.m. $15 advance/$17 day of show
