Keeping it in the family

Alysha and Emily Bankester, along with Melissa Triplett, sing Sunday at Shryock Auditorium. The family band, called The Bankesters, opened for feature performers Dailey and Vincent. Emily Bankester received the 2012 International Bluegrass Music Association’s Momentum Award for Vocalist of the Year, which highlights artists in the early stages of their careers. The band’s next performance is Jan. 26 at the Missouri Area Bluegrass Committee Festival in Fruitland, Mo. Laura Roberts-Daily Egyptian
