Album Notes
"The Lonesome Sisters’ sound is straight out of Kentucky or West Virginia. Intricate acoustic guitar, upright bass and shimmering harmonies fill these beautiful bluegrass ballads. "We try to open the door in this life here below, but only God’s golden key will unlock our new home,” sings vocalist Sarah Hawker in "God’s Golden Key." "Oh Sleeper" begins with banjo and Hawker’s powerful vocals: "One terrible beautiful morning…I’ll shake off time from this body and meet you in that eternal home." Thoughts of home and jilted lovers populate Going Home Shoes. We even get some old time religion as Hawker croons “You want forgiveness, tell it to Jesus that’s his job not mine.” A few traditional tunes make an appearance, and it’s a testament to the Lonesome Sisters’ songwriting that listeners’ ears will easily slide from the traditional to original without noticing any change in style or song quality." Performing Songwriter Magazine Top 12 DIY Picks

Going Home Shoes features special guest and dear old friend, Riley Baugus, old-time fiddle, banjo,and guitar player extraordinaire, singer and performer on the film soundtrack Cold Mountain and subsequent Great High Mountain Tour. Riley has since gone on to perform with Willie Nelson, Allison Kraus, Dirk Powell, and Tim O'Brien. This second album from The Lonesome Sisters, produced by Sarah, Debra & Riley, stays true to the sparse, soulful intent of their earlier work, blending their original songs with more traditional pieces. June Drucker, bass player from the groundbreaking all-female string band, The Heartbeats, and Judy Hyman's Horseflies plays acoustic bass on this recording, adding her beautiful, skillful touch.

Rebecca C.

Try all their CD's, you'll love them all.
The Lonesome sisters are great-the best Old Time music I have heard in a long time. I bought all three of their CD's. I have passed the word to others, who have also bought all their CD's.


Great originals.
Both Cds are Fab!! Top notch production and sound.


Riley Baugus Rocks.
I'm a Riley Baugus fan and love hearing him do his thing so well with the sisters.


I cant stop listening to this CD as well as their other
one. Both great, Thanks!


A superb album
A wonderful album. You couldn't ask for better.


this is the first time we hear the lonesome sisters we like it so much. If Jesus came tomorrow I think He has a cd from the lonesome sisters in His pocket.

Going Home Shoes
I loved one album by these ladies so bought another and have been just as delighted as with the first. Plus, listening to Baugus' guitar work on the songs adds another whole level of enjoyment.

Martin Roberts

Sparse and heartfelt
Why these fair young maidens should be lonesome I don't know but this is certainly an excellent album. Sparse accompaniments, raw production, heartfelt songs and beautiful harmonies generate an overall feeling of rare and delicate authenticity. They seem to be acquiring a lot of UK reviews on this page - when are they coming over here?

Graham Mallinson

A breath of fresh air
Whilst listening to Bob Harris country BBC Radio 2, I heard the track they all pale from the album, this I felt was one of the best tracks I had heard for a long while. Other tracks where recommended, so I went about buying the album, unable to get it off the shelf in England I bought it through CD Baby. Like the initial track I first heard they all pale, I found the other 11 on the album, equally as refreshing.

Toby Wood

Excellent clean, crisp singing and playing - Ignore at your peril!
I heard one track on the BBC here in England and immediately ordered it from CDBaby. I now listen to this great music every night and have not tired of it. Assured singing and great songwriting. You really get the feeling that The Lonesome Sisters know their music and respect their heritage. Gillian Welch watch out - you're being challenged!
