FTA was recently featured on the international television and radio broadcast of the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour and labeled as the new and upcoming bluegrass group by All Things Country Magazine in October 2015.
Eden loves to sing gospel music in church. Playing music and singing is a long tradition on both sides of her family. Eden asked for a violin at the age of 7. After her father bought her a violin, her grandmother began taking her and her sister Adrian to violin lessons. Shortly after, she began to play bluegrass music. Her father plays guitar. Her grandfather played guitar for a bluegrass group entitled The Brumley Ridge Boys, who were able to perform on the Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs show in the early late sixties. Along with enjoying bluegrass music, she loves her animals, playing tennis, and most importantly God. She hopes to continue with music the rest of her life.
Eden’s favorite bluegrass star is Rhonda Vincent who she was able to recently meet at a local concert. One of her primary mandolin influences and current instructor is Doug Bartlett, fiddle player in the eastern Kentucky bluegrass group Hammertowne, who formerly played with Doyle Lawson. Eden is honored to be a part of Tomorrow’s Bluegrass Stars.
