As part of the Festival of the Arts, The Price Sisters will be performing on Friday, February 16th at 7:00pm in the University Center Ballroom.
Twin sisters Lauren and Leanna Price love and play traditional blue-grass, especially that in the style of Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys, and have developed their own sound around that style. The Monroe County, Ohio duo features Lauren on the mandolin and Leanna on fiddle. Their vocal harmonies are unsurpassed, strengthened by a bond only siblings can share. While their vocal sound has been likened to that of Alison Krauss, former Bluegrass Boy Byron Berline has stated,
To see young people like the Price twins excel on their instruments and sing like only sisters can, really makes me proud to know this music will last for a long time.
In addition to Monroe’s influence, they have been inspired by those steeped in tradition and the old-time sounds such as The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, and Hazel Dickens. The duo performed with their family, The Price Family for several years prior to forming The Price Sisters in 2012.
