Early this month we brought you news of Rhonda Vincent’s new web site and pending CD release Desitnation Life.
Band leader and radio host Heather Mandich advises that on 21st April, the title track from Rhonda Vincent’s new album Destination Life was released on her radio program, The Bluegrass Downunder Show on Worldwide Bluegrass.
The song Destination Life, was written by talented New Zealand song writer Donna Dean. It is the title track for Rhonda’s new album. After spending time in the Worldwide Bluegrass chatroom, Rhonda became aware of Heather’s program and that it mainly promoted Australian and New Zealand bluegrass. Rhonda then approached Heather to use The Bluegrass Downunder Show to launch the new track and acknowledge Donna Dean’s songwriting.
The launch was successful and I hope that Australian and New Zealand artists will soon be able to enjoy more appreciation from American audiences as awareness is raised regarding the high standard of bluegrass coming out of both countries. I think that its timely and pertanant that bluegrass news from New Zealand and Australia is reported. The IBMA has seen it fit to choose to show case Australian Bluegrass this year- with The Davidson Brothers being listed as part of the show case for this year. please consider adding this news to your blog – and help support my efforts to make bluegrass a truely international genre – Heather Mandich
The Bluegrass Downunder Show can be heard on Tues 10pm – 1am EDT and Sun 6am – 9am EDT
