    I've heard them before---excellent group. Family bands have some advantages. Harmonies, for one thing. Growing up together, they develop the same speech and singing patterns---listen to the Everly Bros for example. Another aspect is the historical aspect---family bands go way back in bluegrass and country. The family that plays together stays together.

    Luckily, I married a Peterson. 43 years and counting!

    I stumbled on it and liked it on YouTube so I subscribed. They have a lot of good stuff there.

    43 wow, my wife and I made it to 28 just this last Saturday. She put on Facebook we haven’t killed each other yet and I replied, but I’m sure you’re still trying! Hahhaha

    I signed a earlier this year on peghead nation for Marla Fibish Celtic mandolin and Sharon Gilchrist beginners mandolins, she’s bluegrass, classes. A lot of fun but not progressing nearly as fast as I want.

    My favorite anniversary remark came from a friend's dad on their 50th. Someone said "So, 50 happy years, Chet?" He replied, "Yup, except for 1952 and 1966." At that point, the wife elbowed him in the ribs. He added, "And this year ain't startin' off too good, either."

    Pots and pans. Her Dad was the family musician.
    I'm honored to have inherited his fiddle and guitar.

    I wonder if there are any mics out of site because the instruments seem really well balanced and I didn't expect that from a one mic setup and their positions.

    Don't know about this video but I saw a similar style band a couple years ago, 10 feet from them in am excellent venue, so I heard a mix of direct and through the one mic - enough experience and they know exactly how loud to play and modulate their playing as well as their placement. In a way, it's easier to have good balance when you just have to worry about one listening spot, the mic, rather than a room. My guess is if you were in the room with them, it would sound balanced.

    That's standard for many bluegrass groups. If there's a second mike, it'll be on the bass. These folks know the meaning of the word "balance".
