The kids have been singing and playing music since since they were big enough to talk in church just not bluegrass style. The banjo player really got a love for her banjo about two years ago and really has blossomed with her playing. Through her love and desire the other siblings have joined in with the same passion and desire. Their vocals and musical abilities are growing daily. They have a dedication, desire and drive to be the best
