“The Wright Kids” Rocky Mount’s Sibling Superstars!

The Wright Kids, Sage, Baruch, & Levi who performed on America’s Got Talent in 2008, have been honing their harmony skills for the past two years. During this time, Sage and Baruch won numerous awards for fiddle, mandolin and guitar playing, in addition to the three taking top honors in singing competitions. The three opened for bluegrass greats such as Rhonda Vincent, James King, The Lewis Family and The Lonesome River Band. Recently, they opened for country music legend, Lee Greenwood, and received a standing ovation from thousands of fans in the packed coliseum.

And while they did not win the grand prize, they captured something more important…… The heart’s of Americans everywhere…..  Well, that was two years ago and these kids continue to play and sing and impress audiences everywhere they go!

Sage is now 14, Baruch is 11 and Levi is 8 years old.  The three have been performing as a trio for almost 4 years.  The three took their first shot at being a trio when they entered a youth band competition at the Galax Fiddler’s Convention in 2006.  Levi sang lead and Sage and Baruch sang harmony while playing guitar and fiddle.  The three performed You Are My Sunshine and took 1st place at the world’s largest and oldest fiddler’s convention.
