The Siver Family

The Siver Family: Jennifer, Dorothy Jane and Ron Siver

The Siver Family performed in Glens Falls last Thursday night as part of the Crandall Library’s Folklife Concert Series. Hailing from Crown Point, the group mined a variety of musical styles including traditional bluegrass tunes and old-time gospel favorites, as well as original songs that warmed the hearts of the over 200 people listening.

Opening the almost two-hour set with bluegrass legend Bill Monroe’s “Come Back to Me Is My Request,” they switched gears all evening, doing things like the traditional gospel tune “Almost Home” and a batch of well-crafted originals.

The Siver Family Band are bassist Ron (dad), guitarist-vocalist Jennifer (mom) and their daughter Dorothy Jane on fiddle, guitar and vocals. Rounding out the quintet are mandolinist Jim Bevins and banjo picker Steve Lutke.
