“Chasing Lightning Bugs” by Ashby Frank is an ode to family dependability and of sweet memories of carefree childhood contrasted with the struggles of adult life. The song does sound somewhat more experienced than you’d expect from the youthful trio, with talk of “twenty years ago,” but they perform it well.
From the time Gold Heart’s toe-tapping tunes and all-female vocal harmony first reached my ears, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist My Sisters and Me. I love hearing new artists entering into traditional musical genres with fresh material that springs from their life in Christ.
As a mother of three young girls, I must admit that I’m also sentimentally drawn to the composition of the group members and the albums theme. Sentimentality aside, there’s no arguing the high-energy, vibrant musical performances and earthy vocals the trio has compiled. I certainly recommend that fans of female, faith-based bluegrass indulge in the infectious rhythms of My Sisters and Me.
