Bluegrass siblings at HoustonFest

Jordan Laney wrote earlier this week about the youth focus of last weekend’s HoustonFest in Galax, VA. Here is some video proof of why it’s important to support and nourish young grassers.

This video shows 3 sets of teen bluegrass siblings plying their trade. Jimmy Meyer is on bass with his brother David on guitar, Zeb Snyder is on mandolin with sister Samantha on fiddle, and the Church Sisters (Savannah and Sarah) handle the vocals.


There are plenty of pickers who’ve been in the game for 30 years that can only dream of playing that well.

Hats off to everyone out there who dedicates time to nurturing young musicians.
