Sandy Lee, aka Mom, plays a hard-hitting mandolin style and driving rhythm that keep the momentum going in the band Cherryholmes. For special numbers, she switches to the clawhammer banjo. She is the most versatile singer in the band. From bluegrass gospel to old-time mountain and country tunes, she does it all. Her yodeling is a real crowd pleaser. Sandy is also a great harmony singer and song writer.

Until April of 1999, the dynamic family band known as Cherryholmes did not exist, and half of its youthful members hadn’t even picked up an instrument. In five short years, this high-energy Nashville-based band was named 2005 IBMA’s Entertainers of the Year. Their 3rd album on Skaggs Family Records, Cherryholmes III, is due out September 30th.
