Little Bit of Love
Lori Thompson came from a small town in the Catskill Mountains of New York State. She began playing the mandolin in 1981. After a year of practicing, she was out performing in the family band, The Suttons, along with her dad, Art Sutton, and her brother, Warren. Lori also took up guitar and began songwriting at this time. In 1990, Lori moved up to the Adirondack foothills. In 1994, she joined up with the current members of the bluegrass band Stump Hollow. They have performed many of the area bluegrass festivals and events. Stump Hollow has opened for bluegrass greats like the Dry Branch Fire Squad, the Warrior River Boys, and Larry Stephenson. Lori now lives in Remsen. She has continued to write songs and perform in the central NY area for the past 16 years. Many of her songs tell a story. Some come from experience. Some have a history lesson to tell like The Ghost of Wash Loomis which is about the notorious Loomis Gang from the Waterville area. She has teamed up with her friends from Stump Hollow (Carl Stump, Suzanne Privett, Chris Pepe, Ed Entwhistle, and Phil Husted), her brother, Ron Sutton, and her good friend Dorraine Scofield to create a CD you'll want to listen to again and again. Lori and her new band, Cincinnati Creek, have just released the album 'Doin as We Please.' Many songs take on a historical tone like "Where the Black River Flows" a song about the plot to break the dam in Forestport at the end of the 19th century. This song was debuted on the local TV program Mohawk Valley Living in 2007. For a schedule, contact Lori at firstname.lastname@example.org.
