TRURO – Here is Edwige Yingling, with an angelic, operatic voice, singing “Silent Night” while holding her 1-1/2-year old daughter, Aria and being backed up by her father, John, & The Family Band.
Yingling, a native of Truro, once sang the National Anthem at a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park.
But on this day, she was in the cozy confines of the Truro Library.
The Family band includes her father, John Yingling on mandolin, Pierre Beauregard on guitar, Terri Conti on accordion, and Tim Dickey on dobro.
The infant tender and mild in this video was Aria, who needed a hug.
The Family Band, according to Beauregard, is a collection of Yingling relatives and acquaintances who perform on Cape Cod, Washington D.C., and Arkansas.
Each place has a Family Band, and yet they are all members of the same Family Band, he explained.
