Copyright Snyder Family Band 2015
Beginning in classical violin lessons at age three,
Samantha, now sixteen, is an award-winning
fiddler as well as a top-notch singer and
songwriter. She was selected as fiddler and lead
vocalist for the 2013 Youth All-Star Bluegrass
Band that performed at the 2013 IBMA World of
Bluegrass Awards Show held in Raleigh, NC.
Her songwriting and creativity are a big part of
the Snyder Family Band sound. She occasionally
plays guitar and mandolin during a performance
as well. Whether fiddling or singing, Samantha
creates a warm and energetic feel on stage that
demonstrates her true enjoyment for the music.
Supporting these gifted young musicians,
their dad, Bud, holds down a rock solid
upright bass rhythm. His ability to adapt to
the multiple genres that influence the band is
a key ingredient of the trio’s signature sound.

Zeb, now nineteen, also began music lessons
early in life with classical guitar training at age
seven. After amassing multiple guitar
championships as a youth he turned his focus to
performing, recording and writing. Zeb plays
mostly with a flat pick but also incorporates
various guitar picking techniques such as finger
style, thumb picking and slide. He is also an
accomplished mandolin player. Grammy
Award Winning Adam Steffey asked Zeb to
play guitar on his solo project “New
Primitive.” Zeb also received nominations for
the IBMA Momentum Awards for
Instrumentalist in 2013 and 2014.
|Laine & Owen
While Zeb and Samantha take turns sharing lead and harmony vocals,
occasionally Laine, mom of the family, joins the duo on stage to create
three-part harmony. And last, but not least, there are even appearances by
Owen, the youngest Snyder. He enjoys a short visit to the spotlight to sing a
song or play a tune on his guitar, a part of the show not to be missed.
