Buy and Download >
Lydia, Emily, and Claude Martin grew up playing music together in a family band in Maryland. Nowadays they also play solo or with other groups, but whenever they come together again, the old magic resurfaces—a tight, instinctive, totally integrated sound born of years of making music together. Their repertory comes from many sources— mostly from family roots in the Virginia Blue Ridge and from musical mentors in their own home state of Maryland. But though the songs and tunes are wonderfully varied— from old ballads and venerable fiddle tunes to ragtime pieces and new songs—they all bear the distinctive artistic stamp of the family band that made this music their own.
