Bonded by an uncommon blend of instruments and vocals, Tf3’s Charles Yang (violin), Nick Kendall (violin), and Ranaan Meyer (double bass) have found a unique voice of expression. The groundbreaking trio transcends traditional classification, forming a blend all its own with elements of classical, country western, gypsy, and jazz idioms. The members carry a passion for improvisation, composition, and arrangements, all prime elements of the ensemble’s playing. Earning praise from NPR, NBC, The Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Sun-Times, the band has become known for its charismatic and energetic performances.
