The band originated in 2002 but its roots go back to 1999, when the girls started playing violin at the tender ages of 2, 3 and 4 years old.
The players are Willa Finck, Maura Shawn Scanlin, and Ledah Finck, with David Finck on backup guitar. The girls, classically trained through the Suzuki method, also showed an early interest in playing old-time and Celtic fiddle music.
This interest blossomed in the fertile grounds of the North Carolina High Country, an area steeped in Appalachian musical traditions.
The Forget-Me-Nots have thrilled listeners at festivals, concerts, house parties, weddings, and fund-raisers throughout North Carolina and Tennessee. Their music ranges from energetic reels and soulful airs to great works from the classical repertoire.
