 “Don’t let the down-home sincerity fool you.  There’s wit and soul in this modern jug-band equivalent. Marcus Crowder (Sacramento Bee)

            The Loose Acoustic Trio is an American original. Since the turn of the 21st century, they have deftly blended Folk, Cajun, Old-Time Country, Blues, Jug Band, and Ragtime music to create an appealing sound they call “Good Time Music.” The lyrics of the songs range from simply sublime to sublimely ridiculous, each wrapped up in an infectious rhythm that’s guaranteed to make you smile. The combination of accordion, 6-string banjo, bedpandolin (a mandolin forged from a metal bedpan), upright string bass and three part vocal harmonies, sets them apart from any other musical group on the face of planet Earth. It’s a traditional roots style with a contemporary twist.

This is just simply delightful music by a band that has learned its lessons well and knows how to bring a smile to a jaded listener’s face.” Matt Zimmerman (“The Spit-Shine Squeeze-Box Variety Hour”, WJSC 90.7 FM - Johnson, VT)
