Sons Of The San Joaquin

Joe and Jack Hannah grew up in the Great Central Valley of California, in the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. They were raised surrounded by cowboy lore and the Sons of the Pioneers songs that their father would sing around the family ranch. It was these early experiences that would later shape the Sons of the San Joaquin.

In 1987, Joe's son Lon Hannah -- himself an amateur singer -- united with his father and uncle for an impromptu performance at his grandfather's birthday celebration. With that, the Sons were born. A chance appearance at the 1989 Elko, NV, Poetry Gathering sparked the interest of cowboy singer Michael Martin Murphey, who invited the trio to perform on his Cowboy Songs LP. The Sons signed with Warner Western (an imprint specializing in Western-themed music and poetry), and Murphey produced their 1992 debut, A Cowboy Has to Sing. The album was lauded for its effortless re-creation of the harmonies and storytelling that typified the Sons of the Pioneers' material. Songs of the Silver Screen appeared a year later; the album revived B movie Western soundtrack material that had originally been recorded by the Pioneers. Released in 1995, From Whence Came the Cowboy was the first Sons of the San Joaquin album to feature original material, the majority of which was written by Jack Hannah.

For 1997's Gospel Trails, the Sons switched to the Western Jubilee Recording Company. The LP was a collection of favorite hymns, performed in the trio's distinctive three-part harmony. Horses, Cattle & Coyotes followed in 1999, and Sing One for the Cowboy was issued a year later. The early 2000s saw a career retrospective from the Sons, followed by a Christmas album, the For the Young, and the Young at Heart LP, and 2005's Way Out Yonder. Jack Hannah also released the children's book and CD Value Mountain Trail. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi

Only drawback to going to their concert was the overwhelming desire to grab my saddle and head back to Wyoming. Until then, it would be nice if they performed more often in Northern California.
I grew up in the heart to the San Joaquin valley and had the pleasure of hearing them sing live several times. Thanks guys

Hersh M. Love their close family harmonies. Needless to say I am a great fan and have all of their recordings and play them often. Have been privileged to hear them in person several times.

Love this music. I grew up in Tehachapi which is just up the mountains from where the Sons grew up. This music somehow grounds me and I flash back to more simple times in the mountains with good friends. Keep it up guys
Jim & Patty We were also at the Wichita concert - it was great! Please play more Sons on Pandora
I also love the Sons, and wish Pandora would include some of their other albums. We had the opportunity to see them live at Carnegie Hall in NYC at the first ever Western Concert held there in 2003. We also saw them live in Wichita at a small venue where nobody was seated more t han 30 ft from the stage. What a performance! ! !
I love the music and lyrics of the Sons of the San Joaquin. It brings back a time of watching Roy Rodgers and the Pioneers on a Saturday Afternoon.

I saw these fellas as a guests of the Illihnois Philharmonic Orchestra. I was happy to hear the songs of my youth.

We were there at their performance with Juni Fischer. What a great way to end the gathering.
They just played at Elko's 25th anniversary as the surprise guest. I would have liked to be there.
