Snyder Family Band @Randy’s Pickin’ Parlor

Saturday, June 27, 8 p.m., $20

HEAD to Bloomingdale to scope out the young virtuosos of family Snyder. In the running for International Bluegrass Music Association’s 2013 Guitar Player of the Year at just 19 years old, Zeb Snyder performs alongside his sis, Samantha, named Best Adult Fiddler in 2011 at the Old Fiddler’s Convention at the age of 15, and dad Bud on bass.

The trio is often joined by mom Laine to flesh out harmonies; sometimes, little brother Owen even joins in on the vocals or guitar.

Based in Lexington, North Carolina, their family-friendly sound sews bluegrass, Southern rock, blues, Texas swing, and newgrass together into a sound that’s distinctly Snyder: go for the chops, stay for the surprises.
