The genre-defying sound of the Annie Moses Band graces Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall February 16.

If Valentine’s Day gets you in the mood for a good love song, you’ll love the Annie Moses Band appearing Feb. 16 at Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall.

A magical night is surely in store as this remarkable family of talented musicians serves up its unique blend of American folk, bluegrass, classical and pop music.

“We love making music together,” says Annie Wolaver Dupre, who founded the Nashville, Tennessee-based group along with her family more than a decade ago. “We’re very high-energy, very personable. Very approachable.”

The band will highlight songs from their recent PBS special, “The Art of the Love Song,” featuring hits made famous by Nat King Cole, Al Green, Roberta Flack and others. They’ll also showcase the toe-tapping, fast-paced fiddle music the band is best known for, Dupre says.

Called a “preternaturally gifted group of Juilliard-trained prodigies” by Strings magazine, the Annie Moses Band is made up of six brothers and sisters raised by award-winning songwriters Bill and Robin Wolaver. The band is named for Robin’s grandmother, Annie Moses, whom Dupre describes as a farm worker who lived in poverty but whose faith and determination laid the groundwork for the family’s musical training and success.

Since the group’s founding in 2002, they have recorded numerous albums, music videos, television specials and have performed for audiences around the world, including at Carnegie Hall and the Grand Ole Opry.

A favorite description of their unique sound is “Folkestral,” Dupre says. A few of their best-known recordings include “Rhapsody in Bluegrass,” “Shenandoah” and “Cherokee.”
