The Martins will again be bringing their brand of bluegrass home to the stage of the Royal Theatre in Versailles.
Born and raised in the Versailles area, the family band is now based in Jefferson City as they enjoy more and more success in their craft. The Martins features Larita on dobro and vocals, Janice on guitar and banjo and vocals, Dale on guitar and vocals, Jeana on fiddle and vocals, Elvin on bass and vocals, Lee on mandolin and vocals and the youngest, Anne, clogging and fiddling.
The award-winning family band - they have won several SPBGMA awards and were the 2007 SPBGMA International Band Championship winners - entertains at festivals and other venues with both traditional and contemporary styles of bluegrass, bluegrass gospel and acoustic country. Blistering instrumentals combine with beautiful harmonies on old fan favorites as well as their original songs.
