What a Family



Last night we had the pleasure of attending a Bluegrass festival here in Smalltownland.  Put on by our local Cattleman's Association, the featured act was JD Crowe and the New South.  However a local act, known as The Lindsey Family, stole the show in my opinion.  Comprised of eleven children, (yes really), ranging in age from 18 months to 20 years, they play Gospel and Bluegrass music. 

Their talent and stage presence was truly something to see and they had the crowd on their feet.  Although this video is not of the best quality, it does showcase some of their musical talent.  If you would like to read more about them you can do so here.

  13. So love to see other large families! Makes me feel like not such a freak. Although, I will have to admit, my kids only talent is making huge messes and leaving them for me to clean up.
