Wintergrass Music Festival Presents: Westin Concerts – Dan Tyminski, featuring Gaven Largent! Feb 24, 2023
DAN TYMINSKI FEATURING GAVEN LARGENT
Throughout his 30+ year career, 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 4x and was recognized as 2004’s Male Vocalist of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America.
The Dan Tyminski Band will be on tour throughout 2022 and 2023 in support of two forthcoming projects: an EP celebrating Tony Rice’s legacy, and a full-length bluegrass album early in 2023. The Dan Tyminski Band is Gaven Largent (dobro), Maddie Denton (fiddle), Jason Davis (banjo), Grace Davis (bass) and Harry Clark (mandolin).
A proud Virginia native, Gaven has been steeped in the culture and music of bluegrass since his infancy. After graduating high school, he toured with Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper for a year before joining bluegrass super-group Blue Highway. It was with Blue Highway that Gaven received a Grammy nomination for their album, “Original Traditional.” After a three-year international tour playing dobro with Blue Highway, Gaven joined Dailey and Vincent on both dobro and banjo, before joining up with Dan Tyminski. Though touring and session work keep Gaven busy, he enjoys building his own dobros in his woodworking shop, and hunting and fishing.
