www.theforgetmenots.com

 The Forget-Me-Nots are young fiddlers Willa and Ledah Finck, and Maura Shawn Scanlin. Amazingly the three teenagers have been performing together for more than a decade. They began in 2002 as a trio of Suzuki all stars at the ages of 6, 7 and 8 years old, and today the Boone natives are national competition winners with three CDs under their belts. They dropped by WFDD shortly after the release of their CD “Blooming.” It features all original material and we’ll be sampling from it today.
