Back by popular demand, The International Bluegrass Music Association's most awarded Male Vocalist of the Year, Russell Moore, is truly at the top of his game, fronting one of the most popular bands in bluegrass history. Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out are celebrating nearly 25 years as one of Bluegrass music’s most awarded and influential groups in modern day bluegrass. All in all, the band has garnered over 50 industry accolades since their inception in 1991 including being named the IBMA’s Vocal Group of the Year for seven consecutive years. Their a cappella renditions of many songs can rarely be matched and their superb instrumentation provides even more quality sound to their rich vocal blend featuring one of the most respected lead vocalists of all time. All this along with a heavy touring schedule, including many performances on the Grand Ole Opry as well as GAC and RFD channel programs, over 17 recordings to date, and a desire to present their fans with the best music possible, makes this "super-group"
With them they will be introducing 2 new band members at the American Legion on February 9.
