TransAcoustic Radio
Unconventional acoustic entertainment from Richmond, Virginia
Acoustic guitars. Sometimes more.
Played by musical friends including any combination of Tara Lane, James Wilkinson, Debbie Flood, and Leigh Strawderman.
TransAcoustic Radio plays songs that most acoustic artists would never think to play. A bit of humor, a touch of banter, and a lot of entertainment.

TransAcoustic Radio Bio

Birth of TransAcoustic Radio, or "How we came to be...":
Tara thought she didn't want to be in a band anymore until her friend James needed a singer for his band Everyday People. Tara sang with them for a little while, but it didn't work out. Being the ham she is, Tara preferred to be the front-woman, so she decided to jump back in as a solo artist, but then remembered she hates to play alone. After booking a solo gig at Hams, Tara called Debbie and said pitifully, "Will you come play with me?" The show was fun, and the sound was good.

Tara then booked a few shows and was joined by either Debbie, or her friend James. As luck would have it, Debbie was forming an all-girl rock band that needed a singer. Tara jumped in with both feet and thus began a crazy bunch of women called The Ragdolls.

Not wanting to give up the guitar, and still enjoying playing with James,
Tara decided to keep the side project, and give it a name. So, here we are!

TransAcoustic Radio performs with an ever-changing line-up which consists of Tara and whomever is free and willing to do a show. The one thing you can count on is that it will always be is good acoustic music, and a good time.
