About the artists
Success for 'Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out' was nearly an overnight occurrence
for this group after its forming in 1991. Led by the International Bluegrass Music
Association's (IBMA) 2-time "Male Vocalist Of The Year", Russell Moore, IIIrd
Tyme Out, consisting of Moore (guitar), Steve Dilling (banjo), Justen Haynes
(fiddle), Wayne Benson (mandolin), and Edgar Loudermilk (bass), has walked
away with IBMA's "Vocal Group Of The Year" award 7 consecutive years. All in
all, the band has garnered 50 industry awards since their inception in 1991.
Their a cappella renditions of many songs, featuring one of the most respected
lead vocalists of all time, can rarely be matched and their superb
instrumentation, from some of the best musicians in the business, provides even
more quality sound to their rich vocal blend. 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 14 recordings to date, and a desire to present
their fans with the best music possible, makes this "supergroup" one of
bluegrass music's most recognized and in-demand bands in the genre's history.
'Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out' - Where did such a name have its origin? The
name wittingly references that this was the third time out for founding member
Moore, and consequently the third professional bluegrass band association for
him. No doubt, the third time has proven to be a charm.
Respected writer and musician Chris Stuart, in his perceptive liner notes for
Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out's Rounder records release 'Footprints: A IIIrd
Tyme Out Collection' writes, "IIIrd Tyme Out has their own brand of bluegrass:
unmatched quartets and trios, masterful lead singing, dead-on rhythm, tasteful
fills, lyrical solos, and great songs. From stage left to right they are a complete
band – perhaps the most complete band of the past two decades."
