08 Apr Dailey & Vincent to perform at UCA
Hailing from world-famous stages such as Carnegie Hall and Ryman Auditorium, Grand Ole Opry stars and multiple award winners Dailey & Vincent will appear at Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 14.
The duo is riding a wave of critical acclaim for their newest release, “Patriots & Poets,” as well as their nationally broadcasted weekly TV series, “The Dailey & Vincent Show,” on RFD-TV. Backed by one of the best bands on tour today and generally regarded among the most reputable and elite entertainers in American music, Dailey & Vincent’s sound is a concoction of traditional country, gospel and bluegrass blended together by the fantastically instinctive vocals of Dailey’s tenor and Vincent’s reedy harmonies.
“Stand back or face the force of nature that is this astounding ensemble,” wrote respected critic Robert K. Oermann for Music Row magazine. “Take it from me, there’s a reason they’ve earned three Grammy nominations, won four Dove Awards, claimed an astounding 35 IBMA honors (including three as Entertainers of the Year and three as Vocal Group of the Year), multiple No. 1 records, a Public Television Special and their weekly TV series, ‘The Dailey & Vincent Show,’ on RFD-TV featuring guest artists Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, Diamond Rio, Tanya Tucker and more.”
Jamie Dailey is a four-time IBMA “Vocalist of the Year” award winner. Growing up performing with family and regional groups, Dailey later became the lead vocalist and guitarist for Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver for more than 10 years. In addition to the amazing harmonies of Dailey & Vincent, Dailey’s voice can also be found on several recordings by Dolly Parton, Ricky Skaggs and Russell Moore.
Darrin Vincent began performing at the age of 2 with his family band, The Sally Mountain Show. He has accumulated five Grammy Awards and has been voted Bluegrass Bass Player of the Year for four years in a row (2009-20012). As a former band member for more than 10 years to the Grammy Award-winning Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder, Vincent has credits with dozens of artists including his sister Rhonda Vincent (Queen of Bluegrass), Dolly Parton, Nora Jones, Emmylou Harris, Earl Scruggs, Bruce Hornsby, Vince Gill, John Hartford and many more.
