Flatt Lonesome was named the 2014 Emerging Artist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), and it isn’t hard to figure to figure out why. While deeply-rooted in bluegrass music’s historic classics, they also have an energetic flair for country sounds, progressive jams, and soul-stirring gospel music while never forsaking their traditional essence. If you love high lonesome harmony, soaring sibling vocals and powerful bluegrass music, then you will love Flatt Lonesome: Kelsi Robertson Harrigill (mandolin, vocals), Charli Robertson (fiddle, vocals), Buddy Robertson (guitar, vocals), Dominic Illingworth (acoustic bass), Paul Harrigill (banjo), and Michael Stockton (resophonic guitar). Pastor Dolton Robertson, his wife Lisa, and their three children Kelsi, Buddy, and Charli began playing as the gospel group Sandy Creek Revival just a few years ago because of their love of bluegrass and the desire to play music together as a family. Music quickly grew into a passion for the Robertson children, who also shared a great longing to travel, write, and record. So, in January 2011, Kelsi, Charli and Buddy teamed up with friends Illingworth, Stockton, and Paul Harrigill (who is now married to Kelsi as of September 21, 2012) and became Flatt Lonesome.
