The String Family journey began in 2016 when the group decided to hit the road to tour fulltime. They toured Australia extensively for three years, performing at festivals, schools, private parties, corporate events, concerts, busking and more. In 2019 The String Family were offered a residency at Paronella Park in Far North QLD, where they performed 520 shows in 6 months to huge critical acclaim.

The Dream, Paronella Park

In 2019, the String Family created a wonderful show based on Paronella Park’s history. Written, arranged and choreographed by Sarah and performed with synchronised lighting designed by Joel, the show was performed live by the group 520 times in 6 months. Paronella Park still play recordings of the show and Joel’s light show with the nightly light up of the lower refreshment rooms.

A Little More About Us

Who are The String Family?


Are they really a family?

They absolutely are, how else could they sound this amazing together?! Mum is Sarah, Dad is Joel, Son is Heath, Daughter is Ashleigh. The family have been playing together since the kids were very young and all genuinely enjoy their time together.


What genre do they play?

They call it “Classical Crossover” as they perform everything on classical instruments. They love to play classical, folk, world, pop, rock, originals, anything really! Sarah and Ashleigh also sing, and the band have been known to play with a live drummer too.


Have they won any awards?

Quite a few actually. All members have won awards individually, but the first award that the band won together was the incredible title of Australian National Busking Champions in 2015. Since then they have won many awards ranging from Australian Celtic Song of the Year to Best Walking Parade Act at the Parkes Elvis Festival.
