  Sons of the San Joaquin

The "Sons of the San Joaquin" have captured the mystique of the Old West. Their music is rooted in California's heartland where they were raised. As youngsters living in cattle country, they were caught up in the romance of the cowboy ways and their close-knit harmonies now echo with memories of their youth.

Reminiscent of the "Sons of the Pioneers," the "Sons of the San Joaquin" have struck a note in the heartland and they are now in demand all over the world, playing more than 200 dates annually on international stages. The "Sons" consist of brothers Jack and Joe Hannah and Joe's son Lon.

The trio only became a professional reality after young Lon lit a fire under his father and uncle and eventually the group was invited to perform at a cowboy poetry gathering where they were noticed by established cowboy singer-historian Michael Martin Murphy. Since then the trio has never looked back.
The "Sons of the San Joaquin" sing a mix of traditional cowboy songs along with new music written by Jack. A recent release focused on gospel themes.

What began as a close-knit family singing together has blossomed into a rich, colorful trio that brings the history of the heartland to life.
