Dan Tyminski

Dan Tyminski was born in (1967) in Rutland, VT. He was exposed to down-home country and traditional bluegrass music at an early age. His first instrument was a mandolin that belonged to his big brother. Over the years, Tyminski has also mastered the banjo and held his own as a vocalist. The Green Mountain Bluegrass Band was Tyminski's first step into the professional music world. He was an impressionable teenager at the time and performed all over the East Coast with the group as banjo player. In 1988, he became a member of the Lonesome River Band. He lent his banjo, mandolin, and vocal skills on performance and albums like Looking for Yourself and Carrying the Tradition. The second album landed on the bluegrass charts and held firm, winning the group the International Bluegrass Music Association's Album of the Year Award. In 1992 and 1993, Tyminski did some award-winning work with Alison Krauss and Union Station, including the hit single, "When You Say Nothing At All." In 1994, Tyminski completed another album, Old Country Town, with the Lonesome River Band. He spent the remaining '90s working with distinguished artists like Billy Dean, Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Clint Black, Sara Evans, Randy Travis, and many others. In 2000, Tyminski recorded a solo bluegrass album, Carry Me Across the Mountain, under the Doobie Shea Records label. "Stuck in the Middle of Nowhere," "Sunny Side of the Mountain," and "Praise the Lord" are some of the tracks fans will find more than pleasing on this debut release. ~ Charlotte Dillon, All Music Guide
