Musically, KURT HANNA comes from an eclectic background, including renaissance madrigals, classic rock, Christian pop, and, of course, traditional folk. He toyed around with various instruments, but the one he has always come back to is his voice. His voice has taken him far afield, from the mountain heights of Machu Picchu in Peru, to the depths of the Wieliczka Salt Mine in Poland. With Tricks, he started solely as a vocalist, but soon picked up the Bodhran; when his bandmates didn't object, he kept playing. Kurt never understood his mother's warnings not to play in the street. Professionally, he is a project manager for a traffic control company.
