The Harper Family of Missouri is the latest up-and-coming bluegrass act to be signed to Crossroads Entertainment’ Pisgah Ridge label.
This Gospel singing clan consists of Gaylon and Katrina Harper and their three children, Dalton, Dillon and Hannah, who have all been picking and singing since they were young. Gaylon and Katrina met and fell for each other while Gaylon was playing banjo for Katrina’s family band, The Bob Lewis Family. I doubt there was ever any doubt that these two would start their own group.
So mom is on bass and dad on banjo, with Dillon on mandolin, Hannah on fiddle and Dalton on guitar. They have three prior albums as The Harper Family.
It’s a real sign of the times to see 12 year old Hannah reading the words from her phone while singing the scratch vocal. Back in my day…
