The Monroe Sisters together have 100 years of living and playing bluegrass music. Centred around the female voices they bring a fresh sound to the music, with both traditional and well chosen fresh material. You’ll love how they use their instruments to support the music, and highlight just the right aspect of each song. Each member of the band sings lead, so the audience is treated to a great variety of beautiful sounds and song choices. The Monroe Sisters have quickly become an audience favourite.
There’s nothing like “sister” harmony!
