The talented brother-sister duo of Dave and Krista March, with musical journeyman Jonathan Preddice, combine to bring a unique texture of harmony and song. After adding young phenom Rob Caniglia on percussion, and the talented Leanne Preddice on the violin, the ensemble has expanded it's horizons to both acoustic and/or full band performance setup.
