Biography

Rhonda Vincent is a bluegrass singer and an accomplished mandolin, guitar and fiddle player. She was born July 13, 1962, in Kirksville, Missouri, USA, where she still lives.

Her musical career started in her family’s band the Sally Mountain Show when she was barely five years old. She started learning mandolin at age eight, which was also when she released her first single. She achieved success in the bluegrass genre in the 1970’s and 80’s, earning the respect of her mostly male peers for her mastery of the progressive chord structures and multi-range, fast paced vocals intrinsic to bluegrass music.

In the 1990’s she branched out into mainstream country music but did not enjoy the success anticipated there. With the release of her album “Back Home Again” in 2000, she returned to bluegrass with the goal of expanding both the musical reach and the accessibility of the genre. Since then she has seen her popularity and acceptance rise and has received acclaim from several music-industry groups. The International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) accorded her its Female Vocalist of the Year award for the years 2000 - 2005, plus IBMA Entertainer of the Year in 2001. And the Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA) designated her its Entertainer of the Year for 2002 - 2005 inclusive.

    So this one time at a bluegrass festival, my friend and I were wandering aimlessly around and this lady in an RV looking thing asks us for some help. We were gentleman, so we obliged to help and got in the RV to see what we could do. She needed help getting a fancy necklace on so we helped her with that. We didn't think much of it and if anything we were confused and amused that this woman was dressing up so nicely for a bluegrass festival. We didn't hang around long because we saw no need to make small talk so my pal and I get off this bus and start walking past the rear of it and look back only to find her face plastered all over the thing and the words 'Rhonda Vincent' surrounding it. I had no clue. I blew it big-time.

    Does this profile also encompass tracks by "Rhonda Vincent & The Rage", or do those still belong in a seperate profile/artist?

    Puts on a great live show with lots of energy and is very approachable to fans - she was very gracious to a young girl mandolin picker I know at intermission.
