The Young Family Band was formed years ago in the small and closely knit community of Moira located just 15 minutes north of Belleville, Ontario. Brad and Jeff Young are brothers that have been singing and playing country and bluegrass music with their family from children to present.
Brad and Jeff have performed in a great number of shows with their parents Gary and Alberta in the Tweed area and beyond including several showcases at the Central Ontario Bluegrass awards.
In 2005 The Young Family Band started the Tweed Jamboree in an effort to raise monies for the victims of the South Asian tsunami. The Tweed Jamboree was so successful Brad and Jeff carried on the tradition for five years.
A few years later The Young Family Band partnered with The Tweed and Area Arts Council to host “The Gary & Alberta Young Memorial Jamboree” to be held in October on an annual basis.
Gary and Alberta’s eldest son Mike retired in 2016 and officially joined The Young Family Band playing guitar and vocals and in 2017 they welcomed good friend and talented musician Anita Bird to the band playing bass and vocals.
