Young souls, old music.
The Bandits was born one Sunday afternoon on a veranda in a little country town. Gabriel had just picked up a mandolin and Lucie decided slap bass was her thing. Mary pulled out her fiddle and taught them some tunes, which left Amie no choice but to learn bluegrass ukulele. So while all the other kids are playing computer games, Gabriel and Lucie, with Mary and Amie (both old enough to drive to gigs), are playing bluegrass tunes, singing good old songs and writing a few originals.
Gabriel Mallinson (12) – mandolin, voice
Lucie Mallinson (10) – bass, voice
Mary Duff (>21) – big fiddle, voice
Amie Brûlée (never ask a lady her age) – ukulele, bass, voice
