Brunch w/ Georgia Rae


Georgia Rae began playing fiddle at the age of 5. She won her first state championship in 2013 in her home state Illinois. By the time she was 18 she had won 7 state championships (IL, MN, WI) 5 state twin championships (CO, MN) and one National twin win. She has played music with her sisters and mom since 2011 competing and winning many local contests including WGLR Texaco Country Showdown in 2012, Lindenfest Battle of the Band winner 2013, and Old Time Fiddlers National Fiddle contest and Festival Battle of the Band winner 2014 & 2015, 2015 Burlington Chocolate Fest Battle of the Band winner as well as their People's Choice Award, and the WHIW Radio 2015 Artist of the Year recipient.

Georgia Rae and Kelly Jo have grown to be a song writing team together still anchoring and guiding the group entering its 9th season with Joe Burie on Bass and Laura Lanza on Mandolin and mom still playing her guitar. Their 5th and most recent CD, "Into Their Own" is all their own material. The first 4 CDs are only available while supplies last.

Georgia Rae also has developed a solo show with her loop pedal and cleverly entertaining original material, and a few classic as well as obscure covers which she truly adds her own joyful take on things.
