What amazes me most is the mother of these six.  She has four  more younger kids - who sometimes appear in videos.  Married 20 years with 10 kids... and the photo of her on their website shows a really beautiful lady.  I love the family dynamic of Cotton Pickin' Kids.

I got hooked on Bluegrass about ten years ago by the Mizzone brothers from NJ who made up Sleepy Man Banjo boys.  Now they're still performing and have received national recognition.  And Robbie's BF has joined the group as bass player.
