FOLK-POP ENSEMBLE

The Family Vines

BIOGRAPHY

The Family Vines are a group of siblings, friends, and family members who reflect the journey of a young man traveling far from home to pursue his dream, falling in love, finding himself, and returning to his roots. 

Visions of beauty and truth permeate throughout the music, tapping into the corners of every lovers brain. Graber brings these things to life with his gift for vibrant storytelling and sweet melody. 

 

OUR MISSION

“Throughout history the arts have connected community to culture and heritage, providing humanity with a greater understanding of who we are, where we come from, and to where we are going. We would like to give our time and efforts to serving our community, providing art that inspires, heals, and motivates.”

 

OUR STORY

The groundwork of our life and career: 
The Family Vines grew up in the country, in a small midwest town near Sioux Falls, South Dakota… Freeman is a place prosperous in agriculture, heritage, and education. It is a farming community where an extraordinary amount of time, money, and energy is harvested into music and the arts.


Growing up our parents taught us to love one another and music is the gift we share which keeps us together. 
We started out as a string quartet: Elliott on guitar, Michael and Ashley on violin, and Audrey on cello. With the addition of Jose on percussion, and Caitlin on piano, this six-piece vocal ensemble performs music professionally with the dream of giving back to our community, which has been the fundamental to our artistic growth.
