Although this high-energy bluegrass band recently won the Artist of the Year Award from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America-Midwest, the Baker Family thrives in gospel and classic country as well.
From Birch Tree, Missouri, the Bakers manage to perform around 100 concerts each year, coast to coast. Their awards are many, including the Bluegrass Band of the Year by the International Country Gospel Music Association and the Youth in Bluegrass Band Contest in Branson, Missouri.
The band includes mom, Carrie Baker, who plays guitar and double bass. Trustin Baker plays violin and banjo, and recently won the Grand Master Fiddle Championship at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville – the most prestigious honor bestowed on a violinist. As a result of that victory, he performed on stage at the Grand Ole Opry. Carina Baker plays the mandolin and harmonica and has been the recipient of both the SPBGMA Mandolin Player of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year awards. Elijah Baker plays bass and lead guitar and is a past winner of the Oklahoma State Junior Violin Championship.
