Georgia Rae Family Band

Georgia Rae Family Band, folk

Georgia Rae Family Band has always pushed the envelope of traditional music. Their progressive sound is inspired by a mix of Americana, contemporary folk and roots, and a little jazzy swing, all flavored with family harmony and youthful energy. Their original songs are clever and catchy. Fiddle champion Georgia Rae, lead singer/uke Kelly Jo, are joined by a solid driving rhythm “punk rockin’ momma” on guitar, Joe Burie on bass, and Laura Lanza on mandolin. The family has played and traveled together since 2011. Georgia Rae is the 2016 National Twin Fiddle Champion (NOTFA, ID) and a state grand champion seven times (Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota). These girls have come of age and into their own.
