It began over 25 years ago when cousins Dave, Pete and Chris started heading to bluegrass festivals in the US to see some of their favourite bands play.
Now living closer, Dave Stanley and Pete Mohr began Shine in 2014 focussing on traditional brotherly duet harmonies. 

 
Tom Althouse soon joined handling the upright bass for the band. Not wanting to let a good opportunity go by to reconnect with his cousins, Chris Wilson agreed to join the band and travel from Kingston for shows.
