Biography
"Berachah Valley brings to their performances a true spirit of fun and tradition along with inspiration that reaches out beyond the music. We love having them on the World's Original Wheeling Jamboree USA!" - D. Heath / Exec. Dir, Wheeling Jamboree, Inc.

Berachah Valley... was created in the spring of 2005 when a few friends came together searching for a place to play traditional bluegrass, gospel, and traditional renditions of current favorites. Audiences quickly see the result is a uniquely smooth combination of musicianship and female vocal harmonies influenced by the recordings of The Isaacs, The Forbes Family, Emmylou Harris, The Whites, Seldom Scene, and others.

The name for the band is found in its theme Bible verse, II Chronicles 20:26. The players will testify that the clearly evident camaraderie seen on stage is the natural fruit of the great blessing of good friendships and shared faith.

Berachah Valley has had the good fortune to travel to Indiana, Tennessee, Michigan, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina and Ohio to perform at many bluegrass festivals, bluegrass and gospel venues, radio programs, TV programs, and community events.



Berachah Valley is known for their powerful female trio harmony. Cathy Baker plays guitar and provides much vocal support, to help create the pleasing effect of musical harmony.


Michelle Edester is from a strong musical family connection with Renfro Valley and The Parker Family. She continues to blossom with her command of the mandolin. Michelle also provides consistent harmony and is very versatile vocally.


Leisa Hinkle is a vocalist and instrumentalist (playing keyboard during church services). She is a very talented singer who leads most of the material.

Cathy, Leisa and Michelle take a sophisticated approach to harmony and together produce tight vocal harmonies for bluegrass, gospel, country, popular music and other genres.
They are multi-talented vocalists, whose clear sounding, natural voices reach audience members time after time.

Becky Meyers shares her talent on the banjo and dojo. Becky's hard driving banjo playing helps us to capture much of Berachah's original songs which are featured on Berachah Valley's current projects: "Mountain Memories Revisited" and "One Cross". Check out our music at
www.berachahvalley.com.

Mike Elliott brings much musical experience from his years spent in Nashville, TN and generates much enthusiasm with his explosive lead guitar breaks. Mike is extremely diverse, plays many instruments exceptionally well. His experience in bluegrass, county, gospel and classical music brings an outstanding element to Berachah Valley.

On the bass is Larry Collins, who plays with much pathos with every movement and motion. During a performance, Larry seems to perceive complex themes, musical contour, and subtle nuances. His use of the bow during several songs is second to none.

Larry along with Mike bring versatility to Berachah Valley when they align themselves vocally for some outstanding male harmony.


Berachah is a term in The Bible which means 'blessing'. We desire to be a blessing via our music.
