    As children, Jessica, Megan, and Rebecca took classical violin and piano lessons and were members of their local youth symphony. They began singing in public with their church choir and credit their classical training with developing their technical ability and teaching them how to practice. The family heard its first bluegrass recording, Slide Rule by Jerry Douglas, and were inspired to check out their local traditional-music scene.
