Music has always had a resounding presence in the lives of twin sisters Lauren Price Napier and Leanna Price. Growing up, both of their parents sang traditional and old-time country songs. As the sisters grew up hearing duet harmony, they naturally became accustomed to singing together themselves. Lauren and Leanna were gifted instruments for their eighth birthday and began taking lessons at age nine, though they didn’t take as strong an interest in bluegrass music specifically until their mid-high school years. The girls then began attending as many festivals and workshops as possible. Both were recipients of Bill Vernon Memorial Scholarships at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival in 2014 and attended the annual IBMA conference for the first time that fall. In 2017, Lauren and Leanna each completed their Bachelor degrees in Traditional Music from Morehead State University.
With the hiring of Lincoln Hensley on banjo, Bobby Osborne II on bass, and Conner Vlietstra on guitar in 2019, the sisters anticipate to hit the ground running in 2020. The Price Sisters have been nominated by the IBMA for the 2019 Momentum Band of the Year, and Lauren was nominated for Momentum Vocalist of the Year. 2019 wrapped up with the group being featured as an official IBMA Bluegrass Ramble showcase act as well as tackling a month-long tour across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Things start off in 2020 with the Sisters’ debut at the ‘world famous’ Station Inn in Nashville, TN. The group is truly passionate about this music, as well as being part of the bluegrass community and its business world.
