Awkward Sorrows

Harmony. Folk. Country. Rock. Bluegrass. Mostly original. Select covers. Life stories. Truth & lies. Awkward Sorrows is an eclectic acoustic trio with Bill Geezy, Guitar, Rob Coleman, Mandolin and Jim Nee, Dobro.

We play bluegrass instruments, but we play what we like. If you come to see us, you’ll hear a lot of originals, some bluegrass and folk standards, a little George Jones or Hank Williams, and maybe even some Elvis Costello or Rolling Stones. Two songwriters and two lead vocalists mix it up and keep us sounding fresh, song after song. To what musical genre do we belong? Progressive acoustic, indie folk, Americana, country, bluegrass? Labeling is someone else’s job. We just play music we enjoy and hope you will like it too.
