Stuart’s to Host Top Bluegrass Act< < Back to
Stuart’s Opera House is set to host an evening of award-winning bluegrass with Dailey & Vincent on Friday, May 1 at 7 p.m.
Young-but-seasoned veterans of bluegrass, traditional country and gospel groups, Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent cut their teeth working with with legends such as Doyle Lawson, John Hartford and Ricky Skaggs before forging their own distinct career path.
Vincent began his career onstage at age two with his family band, The Sally Mountain Show and has been singing with his sister Rhonda for most of his life.
Dailey also comes from a musical family. His father, guitarist J.B. Dailey, was a founding member of The Four J’s, a regional gospel quartet. Jamie started singing when he was just three years old. By the time he was nine, he was learning to play bass and guitar, and within a few years, added banjo to his repertoire.
From the very beginning of their partnership in late 2007, Dailey and Vincent quickly established themselves as fresh voices in their genre. Their four studio albums and heavy touring schedules have gained them well-deserved attention from bluegrass, country and gospel critics and fans alike.
The duo has been recognized as IBMA Entertainer of The Year (three times), IBMA Vocal Group of the Year (three times), Grammy nominees (twice) and Dove Award winners.
The pair’s most recent albums, Dailey & Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers (2010) and The Gospel Side of Dailey and Vincent (2012), both garnered Grammy nominations, but each had a very specific focus. With 2013’s Brothers Of The Highway, Dailey & Vincent made a conscious attempt to take stock of their careers so far, heeding the admonition of their friend and mentor Ricky Skaggs, who advised them “you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been.”
Floor and balcony seats for Friday’s show are still available at www.stuartsoperahouse.org. Box seats are sold out.
