Lyceum Series Presents Rhonda Vincent

Rhonda Vincent, bluegrass music's six-time Female Vocalist of the Year, and The Rage will perform as part of the Truman Kohlenberg Lyceum Series at 7:30 p.m., April 4, in Baldwin Auditorium.

Vincent began performing in her parents' bluegrass band at age three and was performing on their local television show when she was five. A year later, the Vincent family began broadcasting over KIRX radio in Kirksville. Before she left her teens, she'd been a member of the "house band" at the Frontier Jamboree and Six Shooter tourist attractions.

The mandolinist and fiddler made her recording debut while still a child, and by the time she turned 23, she'd recorded eight LPs as a member of her family's group The Sally Mountain Show.

Vincent's first solo recordings were a trio of albums released from 1988-1991. These earned her a mainstream country recording contract with Giant Records, for whom she recorded two CDs from 1993-1995.

She was named the bluegrass Entertainer of the Year in 2001 and Female Vocalist of the Year from 2000 through 2005. Her first two Rounder albums are among the top sellers in Vincent's field.

Free tickets for this performance will be available beginning March 28 for students at the SAB Office and for faculty and staff in the CSI with University ID.

The University requests that all patrons be seated five minutes prior to the performance. The University reserves the right to fill all seats, reserved and general admission, five minutes before the time of performance stated on the ticket.
