Like the name suggests, Acousticana plays American roots music on acoustic instruments. We take the best of the American songbook and filter it through varied musical influences to create a sound that's both respectful of tradition and refreshingly new and inventive. Add a healthy dose of original songs, tight harmonies, an impressive array of acoustic instruments, and a commitment to creative arrangements and vivid performances, and you get a musical gumbo guaranteed to please. Folk, country, bluegrass, gospel, Cajun, Tex-Mex-it's all here, respectfully informed by soul, blues, rock, world music, and other contemporary influences. Great music has always been about creating new and original expressions, not simply repeating the voices of the past as perfectly as possible. That's what we do, we take from the old and make something new. New music with an old feel. Like Oscar Wilde said, 'Be yourself: everyone else is taken.'
