The Capitol Theatre Bluegrass Revival series continues in April with the Dale Ann Bradley Band. This five-time IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year brings her wonderful vocals to the stage at the Capitol Theatre for the first time, and we’re looking forward to it.
Dale Ann Bradley was born and raised in the coal fields of Kentucky. She fell in love with Bluegrass music as an early teen and was determined to pursue her dreams in spite of religious restrictions and a very rural upbringing.
Her first musical outlet was a regional band called “Backporch Grass.” She took a three-year break from music when she got married and had her son. She returned to music in 1989 when contracted to perform at the Renfro Valley Barndance in Renfro Valley, KY. It was during this time she became part of “The New Coon Creek Girls” and began recording and traveling extensively.
In 1997, she began leading the “Dale Ann Bradley Band” recording two albums for Pinecastle Records, two albums for Doobie Shea Records followed by three albums for Compass Records.
She’s received five IBMA Female Vocalist Awards, two SPBGMA Female Vocalist Awards and many other awards for collaborations. She has returned to Pinecastle Records with her new album entitled “Pocket Full Of Keys” which sat her in the producer’s chair for the first time.
Her ability to write songs about her upbringing, mixed with covers of all genres of music, including gospel, creates a show setting that has something for everyone.
“Pocket Full of Keys” was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2016 for Best Bluegrass Album.
