  • July 28, 2019. 4:00 pm
  • Valley Baptist Church. 7336 Spirit Lake Cutoff Rd. Priest River, ID
  • After spending their childhood in a hollow log eating berries and crickets, this young litter quickly rose to stardom in the Inland Northwest bluegrass scene and has toured throughout the region performing everywhere from cow pastures, barns, garages and parking lots; to television studios, bluegrass festivals, colleges, county fairs and auditoriums. This quintet is made up of five siblings: 2 brothers and 3 sisters. They have established a reputation for good music, first rate picking and a high energy, entertaining show. They are not a tribute or cover band, although their sound is deeply rooted in the classic sounds of Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe and the Dillards.  They play their music with that same kind of energy ahnd enthusiasm as those legendary artists did back when bluegrass was a brand new musical form. In every note they play, it is obvious that these five siblings love to play music even more than they love to fight with each other.
