With songs through the decades, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

It seems that their vocal talent runs in the family, as Emma concluded: “Singing runs in our blood; our Dad can sing, our uncles can sing, and one of our relatives sings rockabilly in Canada! My daughter has got an amazing voice too and I’ll definitely be trying to convince her to join us on stage.”
