About

When Ronnie Bowman, Garnet Bowman and Dré Anders sang together for the first time at DelFest, it was a perfect fit -- so the McCoury family festival can take credit for launching another new group. The vocal trio features Ronnie, the hit songwriter and former lead singer of The Lonesome River Band; Garnet, his partner in life and in-demand Nashville session singer; and Anders, Swedish-born folksinger and founder/lead vocalist of Dré and The Collective. Together, their harmonies evoke the folk music of the '70s, peace, love and songs with something to say. From age 3, Ronnie Bowman has been performing music. Starting in a family band, he eventually joined the acclaimed bluegrass band The Lost & Found before moving on to The Lonesome River Band, joining in time to record 1991 IBMA album of the year Carrying the Tradition. Garnet Bowman started her music career in Nashville as a session singer, becoming one of the top go-to vocalists in town. In the last few years she has exclusively sung and traveled with her favorite singer, Ronnie. Swedish-born Anders is a product of a famous musical family (her father is honored on a postage stamp and her brother is a producer for “Glee”).
