Ranging in age from 16 to 21, The Burie Family is making a name for itself in the bluegrass community, garnering a 2011 WAMI Bluegrass Band of the Year nomination and taking home the 2012 WAMI Christian/Gospel Artist of the Year award. They placed 4th at the KSMU Youth in Bluegrass Band Contest at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri in 2013, and returned to win 3rd place in 2014. They recently were invited to showcase at the International Bluegrass Music Association's World of Bluegrass event in Raleigh, North Carolina. Singing together almost from the time they could talk, the siblings have the close harmonies often associated with family groups.
The Burie Family's performances are driven by their love of the bluegrass genre and their desire to share the gospel. Equally at home ministering to a few or playing to a crowd of hundreds, the group sees each musical experience as an opportunity to glorify God with the gifts He has blessed them with. Performing music specifically chosen to uplift and encourage others, it is their hope that they leave their audiences with smiles on their faces and songs in their hearts.

Bethany Burie (21) - guitar & vocals
Rebekah Burie (19) - fiddle & vocals
Joe Burie (17) - bass & vocals
