The Carper Family / Bio

The Carper Family has brought together three of Austin's most talented young
country and bluegrass singers and pickers...

Melissa Carper [vocals, bass], Beth Chrisman [vocals,
fiddle], and Jenn Miori [vocals, guitar] each grew up
singing and playing music with their families. By the time they
created their new “family band”, each had already led her own band
and sat in with some of Austin's finest musicians. But this
particular collaboration has blended stunning three part harmonies
into the finest old country, old-time, bluegrass, and swing tunes.
Their boiled-down and intimate presentation highlights the quality of
their united and solo voices, as well as drawing out each player’s
abilities with her accompanying instrument.

In addition to bringing audiences their beautiful renditions of
standards, the group also writes original songs that both honor and
challenge the solid country traditions at the heart of their
heart-felt sound.

Already cheered on stages and street corners from Anchorage to New
Orleans, the Carper Family looks forward to showing off their singing
and playing for fans of good country music everywhere.
