Swingin' At Sumtur Featuring The Acoustic TraditionThree folks who love to play, sing, and spend time together doing those things and, after a few practice sessions (accompanied by hot coffee, cold Dr. Pepper, and perhaps a teeny-tiny tipple of Jack Daniel's on the rocks), they have decided to abandon their old name of "Roger Roberts and Friends" for the more democratic and aptly fitting "The Acoustic Tradition". Members include Roger Roberts, Terry Webber and Liz Matson.
They are impossible to pigeon-hole regarding the music we make, except that it's acoustic music only. There will be no accidental electrocutions for this bunch unless somebody drops a mic cord in the water jug at a gig! Sets include a little old-time, some folk numbers, a smattering of cowboy songs, a few bluegrass-like tunes, ballads, story songs, love songs, gospel, 50's and 60's acoustic rock, "real" country tunes, as well as instrumental-only things. Our song presentations are performed in solo voice as well as in two, three, and, occasionally, four part harmonies. Roger generally sings lead, but the torch is passed frequently to each member of the group.
Instrumentally, Roger plays guitar, Terry thumps the upright bass and occasionally lapses into mandolin or guitar, and Lizzie strums rhythm on her dreadnaught.
