The Dan Tyminski Band

Dan TyminskiAnother piece of news we picked up here at IBMA is the imminent launch of Dan Tyminski’s band.

All of the Union Station guys have been looking at a blank schedule for 2008, with Alison Krauss planning to take the year off from band work, and it seems to have been the opportune moment for Dan to move forward with his own band. They played a showcase here earlier in the week and created quite a stir.

The band will be Ron Stewart on banjo, Justin Moses on fiddle, Barry Bales on bass, Adam Steffey on mandolin and Dan on guitar. They are headed into the studio almost immediately after IBMA, with a release on Rounder Records expected very early in 2008.

Adam will continue doing shows with Mountain Heart at least through the end of this year.

UPDATE 10:15 a.m.: Thanks to Barry Bales for catching my earlier error – Ron Stewart is on banjo and Justin Moses on fiddle. That’s my lesson not to post anything after 1:00 a.m. at IBMA with precious little sleep!

    So does this mean Steffey is leaving Mountain Heart? If so, any news on his replacement.


  • Short answer: yes and no

    Long answer: Adam is leaving Mountain Heart, but we’ve heard no word yet on who might come in to fill the vacancy. As soon as we know, we’ll let you know.

    are you sure it isn’t Rod Stewart on fiddle and Justin Moses on banjo? Hmm –

    The band will be at the Birchmere in Alexandria VA on March 1st. Sounds like one to catch.
