The International Bluegrass Music Museum in Owensboro, KY has announced January 13, 2017 as the official opening of their newest exhibit, A Decade of Dailey & Vincent: An American Music Journey. This will be the final exhibit installed at the museum before they move to their new and more lavish headquarters at the International Bluegrass Music Center, under construction now along the Ohio River just a few blocks away.
The exhibit will feature artifacts and memorabilia donated by Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, include personal items like the pair of rings the two artists had made for each other to wear on stage so that they could, in Vincent’s words, always have the things they care about on hand when they perform. “They stand for God, family, country, home and music. All the important things go on stage with us every night.”
Just prior to the opening, they will host a reception at the museum, and offer a concert that will be broadcast live on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction. It will feature Jamie and Darrin with Bluegrass Junction host Kyle Cantrell telling stories and singing songs.
The Museum’s Executive Director, Chris Joslin, expects it to be a special night.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Jamie Dailey and Darren Vincent on this exhibit highlighting their incredible career to this point. The event January 13th will certainly feature a live performance, but this is also an opportunity to hear Dailey & Vincent reflect on their influences, career milestones and the stories behind some of their most popular songs. This is shaping up to be a very special evening, and we are glad to host it here at the International Bluegrass Music Museum.”
Only 100 tickets will be available for the Dailey & Vincent opening, and museum staff recommend picking them up as soon as possible if you would like to attend.
