Bluegrass by Chamber music. A Kansas City sound from a family band, kids ages 14 to 20.
Blessed by opportunities to play for many, we've nurtured and shared talents given as ChamberMusic, Part III.
Following a whirlwind of travel, from meeting and listening to wonderful family bands at the El Dorado Springs, Mo., Homeschool Music Fest to playing at a small church in Seneca, Mo., we are thrilled to be asked to play the Youth Stage at the IBMA annual convention Oct. 4. Late July had us playing minus Dominic in Kansas City right before the awesome harmonious act of Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver went on stage. Thanks go out to the musical talents of Dylan Hall and Cody Cantwell, and to Wornall Road Baptist Church for the invite! With older brother Dominic on a Navy assignment, and the older boys doing their own thing in varied parts of the country as an Army combat medic and state trooper, Sophie and John had to retool for some preshow singing and playing.
When in town, Dominic joins the two and Mom sometimes for a constantly retooling and reforming dynamic bluegrass and classical sound. Whether we're playing at Starlight or in the light of the meeting room at an area nursing home, we're glad to share the talents given. Awesome to have played in Silver Dollar City with national bluegrass family bands for the second year, and nothing is finer than to see your son in uniform (GO NAVY) playing at the Armed Forces Day Celebration in Kansas City.

And a new short play CD is on the way, thanks to Jason Bruno, musician and music producer. Always popular: our 3rd CD: Black&white: redhotbluegrass for a mix of traditional, Celtic, classic vocals and a touch of "newgrass," (bluegrass with an attitude), for a sound that's matured as the kids' talent has. And the 4th CD is a sound of the youngest three: check out Down the Road.
