Maine-based family bluegrass band The Muellers has put in a lot of mileage bringing their high-energy blend of traditional and original bluegrass to audiences across the country during the last few years, but they know that they still have many more miles to go-no small task for a band in which the majority of musicians are still too young to drive. Audiences across the country are taking notice of the band's electrifying performances, twin- and triple-fiddling, unique arrangements, and musical maturity and poise that belies the band's tender age. With family roots in Missouri, the Muellers are firmly grounded in the bluegrass tradition. A true family band, The Muellers consists of parents Curt (banjo) and Karen (bass), plus five of their seven children: Tom (guitar), Laurah (mandolin), Sarah (fiddle), John (fiddle), and George (fiddle). The Muellers\' MasterShield Records debut project, Branching Out, was released in 2007, to positive reviews and national airplay. Their previous self-released albums are Silver Dollar (2006) and Family Favorites (2005). The Muellers are the subject of a 2008 documentary film, Talent to Burn, which explored the early development of the band, and the effect that their musical career has had on their family life. The film can be viewed on The Muellers' website, or on YouTube. Info, mp3s, CDs, and a whole lot more at muellerfamilymusic.com.
