Thanks to those who brought Rhonda Vincent to our stage

— We are indebted to the Allegany Arts Council, WFWM, Dr. Ken Roberts and others, for bringing Rhonda Vincent & The Rage to the Allegany High auditorium on April 26 as part of the Roots Music Series.

Preceded by the highly talented duo of Jimmy Gaudreaux and Moondi Klein, Rhonda and company (five young musicians, mostly from the South) lit up the evening with an hour and a half of crackling bluegrass virtuosity. All (including Rhonda) are multi-instrumentalists as well as excellent vocalists.

Also important: the group was easily accessible after the show — chatting with fans, signing autographs, and selling quality, reasonably priced merchandise, all of this carried out with legendary Southern courtesy and graciousness.

Let’s hope Rhonda and friends will return to the Cumberland area in the near future!
