Millikin University welcomes Rhonda Vincent and the Rage to Kirkland
Fine Arts Center on Saturday. The performance, beginning at 7:30
p.m., is part of the Women of Bluegrass Festival at Kirkland Fine
Arts Center, featuring jam sessions throughout the day.
Vincent, "The New Queen of Bluegrass" as proclaimed by the Wall
Street Journal, is a top draw in bluegrass music and beyond. She has
been featured in People magazine, Oprah's "O" magazine, appeared
with such notables as Dolly Parton and Norah Jones, and received
praise from high-profile fans such as Bernie Taupin and Levon Helms.
Vincent's music knows no boundaries. With over 80 awards to their
credit, Rhonda Vincent and the Rage have emerged as the most
decorated band in bluegrass. Among their honors are "Song of the
Year," "Entertainer of the Year" and an unrivaled seven consecutive
"Female Vocalist of the Year" awards from the International
Bluegrass Music Association.
Additionally, Vincent received "Entertainer of the Year" and
"Female Vocalist of the Year (Contemporary)" at the 39th annual
Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America Awards
