ABOUT THE YOUNG FAMILY

The Young Family originaly consisted of Gary and Alberta (Ma & Pa), Brad and Jeff. Gary and Alberta raised all five of their kids on traditional country music which has a major impact on their overall sound. The group boasts a hard driving sound provided by Brad’s banjo, Jeff’s flat-pickin’ and Gary’s constant rhythm. The vocals were a blend of true family harmony by mother Alberta, until her untimely death in 2009.
Gary, Brad & Jeff have carried on with the band in memory of their dear wife and mother with two performances of the Alberta Young Memorial Jamboree, held at the Marble Church Art Centre in Actinolite.
The Young Family remains a Tweed, Ontario based group who has graduated from kitchen pickin’ to Tweed’s local Bluegrass band. The band plays a variety of events and festivals in Eastern Ontario. They again were invited to perform at the 2008 Central Canadian Bluegrass Awards in Huntsville.

Over the years, The Young Family has hosted a monthly “Tweed Jamboree”, which showcases local talent and has donated over twelve thousand dollars to various local charities.
