Vintage LRB on YouTube

Lonesome River Band founder and former member Tim Austin has posted a number of video clips on YouTube from a 1993 concert in Ferrum, VA. This is shortly after the group starting making a big noise in bluegrass – just two years after their breakthrough album, Carrying The Tradition.

The band at that time was Austin on guitar, Sammy Shelor on banjo, Ronnie Bowman on bass and Dan Tyminski on mandolin. Bowman and Tyminski were just coming into their own as vocalists, and the two of them made for a formidable combination on stage, and on records.

Here’s the clip of them on Bowman’s Game I Can’t Win
