Carper Family Band
Sunday, October 3, 2021
"The Carper Family is a family band like no other, spinning out the effortless harmonies of a born-family with the range and diversity of a made-family... Whatever the bloodline, the music hits the ear with both depth and simplicity, capturing the essence of true country music. The Austin-based trio of Melissa Carper [upright bass], Beth Chrisman [fiddle], and Jenn Miori [guitar] applies their signature, stunning three-part harmonies to bluegrass, old-time, country and swing tunes of the standard and original variety, pushing and honoring American musical traditions at every step.
Their original songs range from the deeply-moving to the profoundly quirky and their catalogue of lesser known country music is impressive for such a young group. The Carper Family’s dedication to the rich and sprawling history of American country music and the joy they bring audiences with their crystalline sound guarantee that these ladies will be introducing this new-old music to folks for years to come.
