The Bankesters Find Harmony in Bluegrass and Family

The BankestersNashville, TN -- Freshly nominated for the International Bluegrass Music Momentum Award for Group of the Year, the Bankesters have successfully transformed a shared love for singing and playing bluegrass music together into a serious performing outfit. Now, on their first internationally distributed album Love Has Wheels (Compass 9/24), The Bankesters shine as mature vocalists, instrumentalists, and articulate songwriters. The band will tour this fall with the new album, including performances at IBMA's World of Bluegrass Festival and a CD release party at Nashville's Station Inn.

Meet the Bankesters and Their Music

The Bankesters“This talented family band from Illinois has successfully navigated the most difficult hurdle facing groups of this kind: growing from a ‘cute kid’ act to a serious collection of young adult musicians,” says John Lawless of Bluegrass Today. In a short amount of time they have developed a unique sound that has drawn critical acclaim from across the bluegrass community. In 2012, Emily Bankester was awarded the first International Bluegrass Music Association Momentum Award for Vocalist of the Year.
