Three sisters and a dream of bluegrass stardom. That’s Gold Heart, a Virginia band featuring the Gold sisters Analise on mandolin, Jocelyn on guitar and Shelby on fiddle along with dad Trent on upright bass. Though barely old enough to vote (or, in Shelby’s case, to drive), these sisters sing together with the kind of tight, uplifting harmonies that would get a standing ovation at the Grand Ole Opry.
Last summer the family Gold was at the very end of a three-month national tour when they graced the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory with an appearance and a special outdoor concert. It was a hot, sunny day, perfect for a bluegrass performance, and Gold Heart absolutely enchanted an appreciative crowd, including Ted E. Bear, who couldn’t keep still to the rollicking rhythms. Here’s a sample of the performance:
Here’s a standing ovation for Gold Heart’s performance, a hearty thank-you for their visit, and a request for them to come by and play any time they’re back in the Northeast. Ted will be ready for more dancing.
