Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Dailey & VincentThe Society of the Four Arts will host their 10th annual Bluegrass concert on April 12, 2015. The 10th Anniversary event will feature the award winning duo, Dailey & Vincent. Dailey & Vincent is one of the top Bluegrass bands in America, and they have quickly established themselves as fresh voices in their genre. Their fantastically powerful vocal blends created four award-winning studio albums, and their heavy touring schedule brings them well-deserved attention from bluegrass, country, and gospel critics and fans alike.

Dailey & Vincent are recognized as 3-time IBMA Entertainer of The Year, 3-time IBMA Vocal Group of the Year, 2-time Grammy nominee, and Dove Award winners. The band has also become a favorite on the touring and festival circuit: they play over 115 shows per year to sold out crowds in the United States. Dailey & Vincent have built on the experience and knowledge gained from working with Doyle Lawson (Dailey) and John Hartford and Ricky Skaggs (Vincent) to forge their own distinct career path. While Dailey & Vincent continue to draw on the lessons they learned over the years about respect for musical integrity and the importance of tradition, they have certainly planted their own flag deeply and permanently into the soil of American music.

Every year the Society of the Four Arts offers world-class concerts from acclaimed musicians. This year they welcomed performers such as Mark O’Conner, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and of course Dailey and Vincent. The last concert of the season is always their annual Bluegrass concert, and it’s a fun concert that celebrates another year of cultural programs.

The Society of the Four Arts was founded in 1936 to offer quality cultural programming to the Palm Beach area. Each season, The Four Arts offers a dynamic lineup of cultural programing, including notable speakers, concerts, films, educational programs, and art exhibitions. The campus is home to beautiful sculpture and botanical gardens, a library and children’s library, and a state-of-the art educational facility. All of their programs are open to the public.

The organization's motto is Four Arts Four Everyone, and they try to provide cultural programing for a wide variety of tastes. Most ticket prices are greatly underwritten by Four Arts members and sponsors. For example, children’s events are free; admission to art exhibits is only $5; concerts range from $20-$45 depending on the artist; some lectures (such as the lecture with Chief Justice Sandra Day O’Connor) free. The costs for classes and workshops vary because of materials required, but in the end, no visitor pays the actual cost of seeing an cultural program.

The Society of the Four Arts is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity, and they are not supported by government funding. We are fortunate to operate in a community that supports and values cultural programs and the arts. Proceeds from Dailey & Vincent support their mission, and enable the cycle of high-quality programs to continue. Their objectives and goals for the concert are quite simple: provide a great concert experience for fans of the Four Arts and fans of Dailey and Vincent, and if in the process some concertgoers are introduced for the first time to the Four Arts or Dailey & Vincent they hope they return next year.
