Lizzy plays the guitar and enjoys singing alto and lead. She works hard at marketing, arranging songs and taking care of bookings. Lizzy makes sure the band makes it to the right place at the right time. She is a shameless Lord of the Rings nerd!

Isabelle is a high tenor singer and mandolin player. Currently, she is taking some time off to pursue a new interest - her husband Levi! They are busy living life together with their puppy Dozer. We all love him to bits! Levi... and the puppy. :D
Olivia plays banjo, fiddle and sings her heart out! Her life's ambition is to play at the Grand Ole Opry and to make a time machine to go back and audition for the Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack. She loves Jolly Ranchers and reading Sherlock Holmes... at the same time.
Emmaline is the bass player and glue of the band! Folks love her energetic style. She loves big fluffy dogs, cats, drawing, and Broadway musicals. She also plays mandolin and guitar, often with a bowl of M&M's nearby.
Dolly lights up the mandolin with her fast flying fingers and is the rhythm of the group. Along with baking, she enjoys movie soundtracks, reading and drawing. She blows everyone away with her natural music flair.
David is the only boy and the youngest in the band. He is a band favorite and people love hearing his Scruggs style banjo playing. During 2020, his voice changed and the whole band is thrilled to finally have a bass singer in the group. When not reading, he works in the shop on his various wood-working and metal-working projects and helps his dad on the farm.
