Gold Heart are three sisters from northern Virginia and one of the best young bands in bluegrass. Sublime sibling harmonies, first-rate original material and exceptional musicianship come together in their distinctive "slow drive" sound. Traditionally rooted but with a modern edge, their music touches all the emotions. Opening for Gold Heart is Long Island's Buddy Merriam and Backroads. Celebrating 30 years in bluegrass, Buddy has been featured in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and other national media.
