Cherryholmes Sign With Skaggs Family Records

Cherryholmes, a family band that earned a 2004 IBMA nomination for emerging artist, has signed a recording contract with Skaggs Family Records. Originally from Bell, Calif., the band — father Jere, mother Sandy and four children ages 12 to 21 — took up bluegrass as an extension of the family’s home-schooling curriculum. Jere quit his job in 2002 so they could tour full-time. They are currently recording their fourth album with Ben Isaacs as producer.
