Biography: The Loose Strings Band (LSB) is an all women band, five members ranging in age from fifteen to twenty three years of age from Galax, Virginia. The band has been together for nine years, playing at bluegrass conventions, special events, ceremonies, and festivals. They are well known in the Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond for their nice blend of tight vocal harmonies and sweet rhythms. They are also unique in their style since they all play an instrument and sing. The band has been well supported and embraced by many through the years.
They have traveled throughout Virginia and beyond playing for many different types of events. They were honored to have been able to perform at Merlefest in 2015, in North Wilksboro N.C. They have also been recognized in Ohio, as the “best entertainment” of the entire travel expo in Columbus. They were also honored to play at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) in 2016, in Raleigh N.C. They have played in Alabama, Tennessee, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Georgia, Massachusetts, and of course their home state of Virginia.
The ladies are excited for the special PBS televised show “Song of the Mountains” at the famous Lincoln Theater to air this year, where they performed a live show last year. They all have gone through their early years; high school years, and now three of them are in college! There is a fine balance in their music career, with studies, family and extra curricular activities. Somehow through their love of music, determination, and very busy lives, they have continued to perform and completed three albums. They have just released their new album titled: “As We Travel” at the end of 2016.
Their love for the timeless music and each other will help them prevail through obstacles that may come their way. They have certainly been blessed wonderful talents, fans, friends, and family! They could not do it without everyone’s support, and hope their listener’s leave with enjoyment and pleasure from each performance.
