Bluegrass music revolves around singing, and the Dunton Sister’s band revolves around the exceptional vocal power of Jen Dunton, on guitar, and Bev Dunton, on mandolin. A lifetime of singing together has yielded a similarity of tone and phrasing, resulting in some of the most amazing harmonies ever heard in bluegrass. Both sisters are also accomplished flautists and have performed with their mother, Gae, in a classical trio.
Bev, on mandolin and vocals, is also an accomplished flautist. She teaches privately and has been a soloist with the Northwest Washington Concert Band. She has studied mandolin with Tom Moran and John Rieschman. Bev lives next to Mount Erie, Washington, near Anacortes.
