Our story begins in a tiny town in Idaho with no stop light and a population sign of 400-something. Callie grew up in a home where music was a way of life. With a father who was a working musician, she often fell asleep to the sound of his bluegrass band practicing outside her door. He played the guitar, mandolin, and fiddle, performing many styles from western swing to bluegrass to jazz. Though he had some specific genres he enjoyed, he had had his own college rock band experiences, and was open to every kind of music.
