Lindsay Rachel Petroff was raised in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula by a family of musicians, and started performing for anyone who asked no later than she had learned to walk and talk. Family gatherings taught her how to use her voice to be a part of something, and by high school, her voice had won her a number of awards including “best vocal soloist” at the North American Music Festival in New York and a scholarship to Interlochen Arts Academy. Her influences,
outside the family, have been singers like Nat King Cole and songwriters like the Indigo Girls. But lately Michigan’s thriving folk music scene has been her biggest influence. Partnering up with the Lansing based bluegrass band, The Flatbellys, she’s performed at dunegrass, lowell bluegrass festival, and a number of venues across michigan.
From folk and blues to mountain music and bluegrass, Lindsay’s singing and songwriting paired with this clean, straight-forward bluegrass instrumentation has formed a unique and refreshing arrangement. They perform a number of original tunes interspersed between traditional, Monroe Brothers and Flatt and Scruggs tunes with unforgettable vocal harmonies and head-turning instrumental breaks.
