Erica's Bio

Main Content

Erica began playing music at six years old. She started taking private Violin lessons with a local teacher and soon after was accepted into Duke String School for Children where she performed in their Orchestra for a few years. She then showed interest in Bluegrass music and began to take lessons in Bluegrass Fiddle with J.B. Prince for nine years. Erica sings harmony as well as lead in the band. She also wrote and illustrated her own children's book when she was twelve years old named, "My Little Book of Stories".

Erica enjoys meeting many different people in their travels playing across the country and being able to make people smile while listening to music as well as laugh at the funny moments the family has on stage just being themselves and enjoying playing music. She currently works as a Technical Analyst and is a United States Navy Veteran. Erica also has a son and her husband is currently serving on active duty in the United States Marine Corp. After finishing school for her Associates in Computer Programming she hopes to be able to spread her love of music and teach children the gift she was given many years ago.
