Rhonda Vincent and the Rage
Seven-time International Bluegrass Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, Rhonda Vincent has performed on stage since the age of three, when she made her debut as a member of her family’s band, the Sally Mountain Show. A mandolin player and fiddler as well as a vocalist, she also made her recording debut while still a child. By the age of 23, she had recorded eight LPs as a member of her family’s group.
In the 1990s, after a period of performing and recording mainstream country music, Vincent returned to her Bluegrass roots. Though a car accident in December 1999 prevented her from coordinating auditions for her new group in Nashville, she eventually hired the first lineup of her band—The Rage—using the Internet to communicate, returning with her album Back Home Again in 2000. Since their original formation, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage have continued to garner praise from critics and an ever-growing audience of Bluegrass fans around the world. The latest incarnation of the Rage, featured on the latest album, Destination Life (2009), features former Grascal Aaron McDaris on banjo, Ben Helson on guitar, bassist Mickey Harris, and fiddler Hunter Berry.
