Originally known as the Harris Family, Trinity River Band is made up of Dad Michael (Guitar, Vocals), Mom Lisa (Bass, Vocals), Daughter Sarah (Mandolin, Lead Vocals), Son Joshua (Banjo, Dobro, Vocals), and Daughter Brianna (Fiddle, Vocals). They trace their beginning to their first public performance together in their home church in May 2007 in the pine forests of northeast Florida.

Trinity River Band will celebrate their 10th Anniversary in 2017 as the most successful, all- in-one-family bluegrass band of the last 6 years! Their last three studio albums have been met with critical acclaim and practical success, with 11 songs out of 34 from the three albums reaching the respected Bluegrass Today Top 20 Charts for a total of a mind-blowing 60 weeks!

In 2016, the band released Things We Do For Dreams. The first single release, “Come Back Train” written by Grammy winner Jerry Salley and Cassidy Lynn Alexander, became Trinity River Band’s first #1 song; ultimately spending six weeks in the top 5 on the Bluegrass Today Top 20 Chart.

In addition to their musical exploits, the Trinity River Band has ventured into television, with appearances on The Dugger Mountain Show which airs on the Heartland Network (formerly the Nashville Network) and Daytime the nationally syndicated morning show seen by over 3 million viewers a week! TRB has already filmed an upcoming appearance on Song of the Mountains which will air on numerous PBS stations in early summer of 2017.
