Dailey and Vincent are back in BRISTOL!

January 07, 2012
Paramount Center for the Arts presents: Dailey and Vincent — SATURDAY, JANUARY 7, 2012 AT 8:00PM. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent became the most heralded new act in bluegrass as their debut album Dailey & Vincent (2008) and busy tour schedule introduced them to wildly appreciative audiences. The group took home seven awards at the 2008 International Bluegrass Music Awards Show, including Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year. Brothers from Different Mothers presents the band at a level of synergy that only comes from constant live performing. It exudes the enthusiasm of a venture still fresh for all its participants. Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent have been bluegrass musicians throughout their careers and never depart from that core sensibility on Brothers from Different Mothers. But, like the earliest icons, they also push the bluegrass envelope. Best of all, they've found the closest thing to brotherhood — a true musical partnership. - adapted from the notes by Fred Bartenstein
