Bluegrass legend plays Franklin

Written by 

art rhondavincentBluegrass star Rhonda Vincent will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

 

Vincent began her professional music career at the age of five, playing drums with her family’s band, the Sally Mountain Show. She picked up the mandolin at eight and the fiddle at 10, performing with the family band at festivals on weekends. After appearing on TNN’s nationally televised “You Can Be a Star” program in her mid-20s, Vincent struck out on her own, singing with the Grand Ole Opry’s Jim Ed Brown, demonstrating her passion for traditional bluegrass music. Rhonda Vincent & the Rage are known for playing hard-driven, high-energy contemporary bluegrass. Vincent has been nominated for multiple International Bluegrass Music Association awards and for the IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year award three years in a row. The Wall Street Journal named Vincent the “Queen of Bluegrass.”

Tickets are $15 and $18.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
