The Carper FamilyBack When
Ever wonder why Austin never spawned a female answer to hillbilly Wayne Hancock? Check out the Carper Family. In spite of their youth, Melissa Carper (bass), Beth Chrisman (fiddle), and Jenn Miori (guitar) blend their voices immaculately, kick some shit when they have to, and write warm and enticing songs that sound like they were new 50 years ago. Guests Cindy Cashdollar and Brennen Leigh light the way.
