Album Notes
Featuring the traditional mountain gospel music of the McDowell Family, the "Precious Memories" album is the first of their recordings. And though it is an earlier version of the family band, it has always been a popular seller capturing family harmonies and Emma and Bryan's memorable vocals and instrumental abilities at a younger age. You'll want to add this recording to your gospel library while supplies last.

Bryan and Emma McDowell, now 16 and 19, have been performing in the southeast with their family band, The McDowell Family, for almost eight years. They began in churches, and soon were invited to play at multiple venues, including bluegrass festivals, state fairs, family theme parks, the well-known Renfro Valley Barndance of Kentucky and Carter Family Fold of Virginia, as well as private weddings, receptions, reunions, and corporate events. During this time, Bryan and Emma were mentored on fiddle by Master Fiddler Arvil Freeman, of Weaverville, NC, and occasionally received vocal instruction from Dale Ann Bradley (2007 IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year). Bryan and Emma are now award-winning musicians in the field of bluegrass music, and their style and repertoire has been compared to such national acts as Alison Krauss and Union Station, Nickel Creek, Sonya Isaacs, Bryan Sutton, and Aubrey Haynie.

Now performing as a duet, they have kept their feet planted firmly in the traditional bluegrass music of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but many of their performances include contemporary and progressive bluegrass, traditional jazz, Celtic, folk/Americana, and gospel.
