The Beck Family
The Beck family has been entertaining audiences in the Treasure Valley of Idaho for the last four years performing bluegrass music as a band called Fiddle Express. They are excited to announce the completion of their first EP, Rubber Dolly in January 2019. Some Bluegrass DJ's are comparing their music to the Grascals and Lonesome River Band.
The Becks start them young, at 3 with classical training on violin. Each kid has found their passion on their own individual bluegrass instruments. Their music offers a wide range of tunes from toe-tapping Monroe songs, to Twin Fiddling, and Swing music.
Fiddle Express is currently playing shows not only in ID, but also in neighboring states. Please subscribe to their email list to stay informed about where they are playing next. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in booking them for a show. Check out their music and ENJOY!
