This award-winning family of six will stun you with their musical talents and naturally blended voices in this 2-hour show full of wholesome family entertainment. With beautiful harmonies and a top-notched bluegrass sound, the Petersens will win a place in your heart as they perform traditional standards of artists like Bill Monroe, Doyle Lawson, and Rhonda Vincent, as well as contemporary artists like Alison Krauss and Balsam Range. The family also adds twin fiddle tunes, gospel a capella, original songs, and yodeling to their talented musical performances!
In 2007, after their father retired from the United States Air Force, the family moved to Branson where they appreciate Branson for its love of God, country, and acoustic music.
With shows full of faith family and fiddle tunes, The Petersens love to contribute to the family atmosphere! This gifted family dazzles with their many instruments, including the mandolin, rhythm guitar, banjo, bass guitar, and fiddle. They
perform a variety of bluegrass and gospel favorites while blending their voices and instruments to create a patriotic and inspirational harmony.
Join Jon and Karen and their four lovely children, Ellen, Katie, Julianne, and Matthew, for a performance that will wow and inspire you. Even as they work together to give you outstanding performances, they still manage to provide audiences with a look into each of their own unique styles, showing you family entertainment at its best. Enjoy the combination of Katie's fiddle, Ellen's one-of-a-kind banjo, Matthew's and Jon's rhythm guitars and basses, Julianne's fantastic vocals and fiddle, and their mother Karen's mandolin for a complete bluegrass sound. Ellen was even a contestant on Season 14 of American Idol, where Harry Connick Jr. applauded her subtlety and proclaimed that she made him proud to be an American.
