The Haden Triplets - "Wayfaring Stranger"

We loved The Haden Triplets's 2014 debut album. Their three part harmonies and traditional folk songs hit us right in a sweet spot (plus, being huge fans of that dog. doesn't hurt). Their take on the traditional "Wayfaring Stranger" has surprised me. I'd expect a very traditional take on the song, but The Haden Triplets go in an ultra-modern experimental folk direction with it. Does as a tribute to their late father, Charlie Haden, they kept their voices right up front and instrumentation to a bare minimum. All instruments are played in a very slow, haunting way to an intense effect. It's an interesting direction for The Haden Triplets, and for the song itself.

You can watch the lyric video for "Wayfaring Stranger" below. The Family Songbook, the upcoming album from The Haden Triplets, will be out January 24 on Trimeter Records. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on The Haden Triplets, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
