Rhonda Vincent picks new member for The Rage

Tuesday, November 20, 2007 – Rhonda Vincent added a new to her line-up. Darrell Webb is joining The Rage as guitarist, replacing Josh Williams, who left in September. Webb will be joined by veteran Rage members Hunter Berry (fiddle), Mickey Harris (bass) and Kenny Ingram (banjo), who have been part of Vincent's recordings and live performances over the past six years.

Born and raised in West Virginia, Webb is a multi-instrumentalist and steeped in a rich family heritage of bluegrass music. Webb's professional career started at age 19, when he filled the mandolin position for the Lonesome River Band following the departure of Dan Tyminski to joined Alison Krauss and Union Station. At 21, Webb joined bluegrass veteran, J. D. Crowe. This is his first full-time job as a guitarist, having previously been a mandolinist and vocalist.

"Darrell Webb is a bluegrass marksman," Vincent said, "bringing precision and entertainment to a new generation of The Rage. He plays every instrument, is a consummate performer and had an instant camaraderie with the rest of the guys - which is important, because we're together a lot: over 250 days per year."

Webb also released a solo album on Pinecastle Records.

Vincent is releasing "Good Thing Going" Jan. 8, 2008 on Rounder. The disc features five new Vincent originals and special guests, including bluegrass legend Jesse McReynolds and IIIrd Tyme Out singer Russell Moore.

The Rage resume touring following their holiday break beginning Jan. 4, 2008 in Jekyll Island, Ga.

Her career took a country turn for a few years, but she's mostly a bluegrass artist these days, and bluegrass is the beneficiary. Vincent has found her voice (literally and figuratively) fronting The Rage. Anyone who has seen her live show knows that she can tear it up, whilst remaining true to mountain music sensibility. ...
CD review - Christmas Time The very thought of Rhonda Vincent, with her lovely voice and wonderful musicianship, ought to sell many on her new Christmas album, "Christmas Time." She performs some of the best loved Christmas songs, ranging from a reverent "Angels We Have Heard on High," to a celebratory western swing of "Jingle Bells." "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen" also benefits from a reverence similar to that applied to "Angels We Have Heard On High." But no matter the ...
CD review - Only Me Bluegrass icon Rhonda Vincent took a stab at country stardom early in her career, after leaving her family's Sally Mountain Show band, but before racking up an ongoing string of bluegrass classics with her band The Rage. It didn't go well, perhaps because Vincent is a traditionalist who didn't wear contemporary country production with the right artifice. It certainly wasn't because she doesn't love country music, as this new double disc set proves. There's a ...
