Centered on powerful vocals and poignant songwriting, the Vickie Vaughn Band serves a unique brand of bluegrass that blends tradition with youthful funk and energy. Their sets engage a wide variety of audiences by combining the songs of artists such as Bill Monroe, Cat Stevens, Bob Dylan, and John Prine with originals and classic instrumentals. They are among the 30 bands selected by IBMA as part of this year’s official Bluegrass Ramble showcases during the World of Bluegrass – get a sneak preview of this exciting band for free in North Hills! Last year, they were nominated for the IBMA Momentum Award for Band of the Year, and they are certainly keeping the momentum this year! 

Vickie Vaughn Band’s debut EP, produced by Grammy-winner Ronnie McCoury, is scheduled for release in May. And they have another full season of touring ahead, with key stops at Delfest in Cumbelrand, MD and another appearance at ROMP. When not on the road, you can find the band playing at their usual haunts in Nashville— The Station Inn, Music City Roots and The Country Music Hall of Fame. The funky yet traditional five piece band is led by the big-voiced, bass playing western Kentucky native, Vickie Vaughn. Her band is stellar and well rounded with Justin Hiltner’s innovative arch-top banjo styling, mandolinist Casey Cambell’s blend of creativity and tradition, fast-fingered guitarist Zach White, and the tasty fiddling of Maggie White. (Photo credit: Isaac White)

Calling all youth musicians (fiddle, guitar, mandolin, banjo, & bass) – you are invited to a pre-show jam workshop with Lynda and Jamie Dawson (of Kickin Grass Band)! One song the group will play together is “Hot Corn Cold Corn;” other songs will be determined depending on the skill levels of the students who come to the event. More experienced music students have the option to come prepared with a song to lead, either an instrumental or a singing song where they sing the verse/chorus, preferably with only 3 or 4 chords throughout (for simplicity in teaching) – this is not a requirement to participate. And after the jam, of course, stick around for the concert by the Vickie Vaughn Band!Lynda also teaches the popular songwriting sessions at PineCone’s Bluegrass Camps for Youth, and she’ll be one of the instructors at the NEW Bluegrass Jam Camp in Cary Aug. 10-14!
