Grass Valley’s Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin will bring a “fresh approach to bluegrass, roots, folk and Americana” next Friday when they play Cottonwood Restaurant and Bar. The group is made up of three siblings; Paige, Aimee and Ethan; and their mother, Christy.
“Playing music with their family band (Anderson Family Bluegrass) since 2004, the siblings have played around the country at many well-known events and festivals, such as Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Awards and Conference), Wintergrass, CBA’s Father’s Day Bluegrass Festival, and many more,” according to the group’s online biography. “When Paige graduated in 2012, she decided she wanted to pursue a music career. She started writing songs in 2009 with a style all her own, and asked siblings Aimee and Ethan if they wanted to start a band featuring the new music. Since they started in 2012, they have wowed and captivated many audiences with their powerful original songs, strong sibling harmonies, and unique styles of singing.”
Paige Anderson began playing guitar at nine years old and has been recognized for her flatpicking, according to the website. She held the title of Teen Ambassador for the California Bluegrass Association from 2008 and 2011. She plays bass and clawhammer banjo, as well as being sponsored by Schenk guitars, according to the site. Her siblings appear to be following suit, developing their own styles as part of the group.
Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin released their debut EP, “Wild Rabbit,” in 2012.
