Album Notes
"Back in 2005, the Loose Acoustic trio surprised us with a new and fresh
sound in the world of Cajun, folk, jug & blues music. Their "Brand New Mind"
album was so inspiring that we genuinely asked ourselves if the follow up
would sprout the same qualities.

Well be relieved! "Sorrow Be Gone", preaches again the message we already
heard on "Brand New Mind". Richie Lawrence, Ken Cooper, and Steve O' Neill
are still capable of creating the tunes and sounds that make us love these guys. “Rise and Shine” is the ideal catchphrase to start the day, but tunes like "For a While", "Gone Too Long", "Love Me Love You" (Joe Craven on fiddle & Washboard Chaz Leary), "Pinball Wizard" (Peter Townsend!), and "Johnny Appleseed" (Paul Lacques on Jews harp) make my day.

"Soup on a Bun", again with Joe Craven on fiddle, and title track "Sorrow Be
Gone" are lecturing the same friendly, tasteful sermon as the ones before, but who cares, it just can't be better! Put this album on your Ipod, find your raincoat and go hiking for the day! No need for vitamins and extra nutritional values. As long as you have these tunes on, the world is bright and sunny! "Music fills the air, let the sunshine in" ("Me & You", Rita Hosking, vocals)!

Buy this album & spread the news, the Loose Acoustic Trio is back with
fifteen terrific songs. The band passes with grade A and brings, with "Sorrow
Be Gone", the ideal soundtrack for a better world!" (ROOTSVILLE.BE)

The Loose Acoustic Trio proudly hail from Sacramento, CA., an island of Middle America in the far out west. Wielding accordion, upright bass, guit-jo, bedpandolin (you heard right), and tight three part harmonies, the Trio are as challenging as any upstart punk or new folk outfit. LAT have honed their defiantly all acoustic, truly unplugged sound outdoors under the hot San Joaquin Valley sun, serenading farmer's markets, festivals, and fairs”and occasionally ducking indoors for college coffeehouses and their big concert appearances at The Palms Playhouse theater in rural Winters, CA. The Loose Acoustic Trio thrives on the margins, like the best of modern Americana.

Since releasing their debut CD, Brand New Mind, in 2005, The Loose Acoustic Trio have tapped many veins of American roots music, including Folk, Cajun, Old Timey, Zydeco, and Ragtime”their original and unique songwriting earn LAT the tag "modern". Sorrow Be Gone, the band's second release, is spearheaded by a grin-inducing interpretation of The Who's classic rock cornerstone "Pinball Wizard", which will likely focus 15 minutes worth of attention on the band. Which is hopefully enough time for the band's thoughtful original songs to sink in:

Title track "Sorrow Be Gone" is a brand new song you've heard all your life, with an irresistible chorus and message of post-Bush/Cheney optimism. It's quietly fierce. "We All Need More Kindness" is a touching Salvation Army style call for peace in a modern age. "New Seeds" applies a farmer's metaphor to renewing a romantic relationship. "Johnny Appleseed,", inspired by Michael Pollan's revolutionary books on saving the planet through growing and eating right, celebrates the very real 19th century madman whose seeds scattered by the millions live on in orchards throughout America.

In our Wii generation, these juxtapositions of offbeat and heartfelt make The Loose Acoustic Trio about as close to mom, apple pie and Will Rogers as you can get; an American Original.

Since the 21st century, this modern jug band offered Brand New Mind in 2005, and will release Sorrow Be Gone (2008) on Big Book Records. The band's contemporary twist on traditional roots music has garnered international radio airplay, TV appearances and many festival bookings, including the California State Fair, the Sacramento County Fair, and the Cotati Accordion Music Festival. The Loose Acoustic Trio is: Richie Lawrence (accordion, vocals), Ken Cooper (guit-jo, bedpandolin, vocals) & Steve O'Neill (upright bass, vocals).
