Athens State University is pleased to announce a Special Engagement by Dan Tyminski presented by the Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention in conjunction with the Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Concert Series. The performance is scheduled for Saturday, February 26 at 7:00 pm in McCandless Hall.
For over 30 years, Dan Tyminski has left his mark in every corner of modern music. Tyminski’s voice famously accompanies George Clooney’s performance of the Stanley Brother’s classic song “I’m A Man of Constant Sorrow” in the film Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, and his vocal collaboration with Swedish DJ Avicii on the song “Hey, Brother” was a global smash, having been streamed over 1 billion times to date.
Dan has also contributed guitar and/or harmony to projects by Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Brad Paisley, Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Kenny Chesney, LeAnn Rimes, Aaron Lewis, and Rob Thomas, to name a few. In addition to his highly successful solo career, Dan Tyminski has played guitar and mandolin for Alison Krauss and Union Station since 1994. His unmatched instrumental skills and burnished, soulful tenor voice have been key components of the band.
Dan has been honored with 14 Grammy Awards, was named Male Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association four times, and was recognized as 2004’s Male Vocalist of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America.
Tickets for the event are $20.00 and can be purchased by visiting www.TVOTFC.org or calling the office of University Advancement at 256-233-8185.
As part of the Athens Forever Bicentennial Series, this event is sponsored by the Tennessee Valley Old Time Fiddlers Convention Steering Committee, with funding provided in part by the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area, the Alabama State Council on the Arts, and the National Endowment of the Arts, a federal agency.
