Lyceum Series Presents Rhonda Vincent

Rhonda Vincent, bluegrass artist and five-time Grammy nominee, will perform during the second event of the Kohlenberg Lyceum Series at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14 in Baldwin Auditorium.  

Since releasing her first solo album in 1988, Vincent has gone on to produce more than 15 others. Additionally, she has collaborated with many popular names in the industry including Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Willie Nelson. Vincent’s distinguished career has earned her the unofficial title of “Queen of Bluegrass.”

Vincent has been selected as the Female Vocalist of the Year seven times by the International Bluegrass Music Association and was also named Entertainer of the Year in 2001. The Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America inducted her into its Hall of Fame in 2014. Vincent and her band have received multiple awards and honors throughout the years.
