Darke County Center for the Arts will open its 2011-2012 Artists Series season on Saturday, October 15 by presenting award-winning bluegrass artists Dailey and Vincent at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville. A seven-piece band fronted by Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, the group's most recent album, Dailey and Vincent Sing the Statler Brothers, has won kudos from music critics as well as accolades from fans of many musical genres. Their show starts at 8 p.m.

“This group is loaded with talent; Jamie Dailey's sweet pure tenor and Darrin Vincent's seamless harmonies are enhanced by the amazing skills of an incredibly skilled backup band, all of whom can also do outstanding individual solo work,” said DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “Their show, which includes gospel tunes, acoustic country, hardcore bluegrass, and lots of humor, is simply awesome; DCCA is thrilled to offer our community the opportunity to enjoy these bluegrass superstars,” Mr. Rawlins concluded.

Jamie Dailey sang and played with Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver for several years; Darrin Vincent, who got his start with his family's band which also included his sister Rhonda, was for ten years a member of Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. Their bandmates include Christian Davis on guitar and bass vocals, Joe Dean, Jr. playing banjo and guitar as well as singing bass, mandolin and guitar player Jeff Parker who also sings harmony, and master fiddler Jesse Stockman.

Darke County Center for the Arts receives financial support from Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial, Ketrow Foundation, and the Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund. Operating support is also provided by Ohio Arts Council, the state agency that supports public program in the arts.

Tickets for the Dailey and Vincent Show are $25, and can be reserved by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or Tickets will also be available at the door if any remain by showtime.
