This lovely family group is a bluegrass gospel quartet. 
Hailing from Piedmont, Missouri, they have brought the ‘family’ musical
adventure full circle.  This experience is a mom and dad with two very
talented musical children.  Dad, Jeff,  picked up on the bass, and mom,
Danita, on the mandolin to help back these two gifted kids.  Charity is
about 15 years old at this writing, who has the stunning vocals that
makes their work stand out, but more importantly she plays the fiddle
exceptionally well.  It’s her younger brother Justus that stands out on
acoustic guitar and Dobro.  His vocals are super too.  “Count Your
Blessings” is the first song that jumps out to the listener on this
session, followed by “House of Gold” both of which are up-tempo really
well done old-time style gospel songs.  The family recorded this project
at the Raney Studios which is a good choice, just about everything
coming out of that studio is good work.  This family group is already
moving their musical career along rapidly. The children will be the
recipients of “Rising Legends” awards at the 41st annual National Old
Time Country/Bluegrass/Folk Music Festival in LeMars, Iowa, Aug. 29-Sept
4, 2016.  It’s the up-tempo songs that this family does so well, and it
is this same ‘style’ that the old-time folks who love old-time music
will like the best. We’ll be looking forward to having this gifted
family at the annual convention of ‘real’ country and bluegrass music.
