This edition of Jubilee features the award-winning bluegrass sounds of IIIrd Tyme Out in a performance taped at the 2002 Festival of the Bluegrass in Lexington, KY.

When vocalists Ray Deaton and Russell Moore established their new band in 1991, they named it IIIrd Tyme Out because it was the third professional band association for each singer. And the third time really has turned out to be the charm. Since 1992, IIIrd Tyme Out has received more than 40 awards from the International Bluegrass Music Association, including Vocal Group of the Year for seven consecutive years.

Individually, the band’s members are also receiving critical notice. In 2000, Moore was named Male Vocalist of the Year (Contemporary) and Deaton was named Bluegrass Bass Fiddle Performer of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America. Mandolin player Wayne Benson was named SPBMA’s Mandolin Player of the Year three years in a row.

This performance also features Steve Dilling, formerly of the Lonesome River Band, on banjo, and fiddle player Greg Luck, who has played with J.D. Crowe and the New South. It spotlights tunes from a recent release, Singing on Streets of Gold.
