Wintergrass 2012 Performers-Jr. Sisk & Ramblers Choice

From the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia comes one of bluegrass music’s most honest voices in the genre’s history, Junior Sisk. Over the years, his haunting, almost lonesome vocals has earned him the devotion of countless traditional bluegrass fans from all over the world. His songwriting talents helped the Lonesome River Band make their ascent into bluegrass stardom in the early 1990’s and then he became a member of Wyatt Rice & Santa Cruz and ultimately Blueridge, again reaching new audiences that would eventually follow him on his own musical path. In 1998, Sisk formed Ramblers Choice and together they recorded and released their first solo project titled Sounds Of The Mountains and also contributed to the award winning The Stanley Gospel Tradition.Nominated numerous times for Male Vocalist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) and Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America (SPBGMA), Junior Sisk is at the top of his game and has surrounded himself with a top notch band of musicians including Jason Tomlin on bass and vocals; Chris Davis on mandolin and vocals; Billy Hawks on fiddle and vocals; and Jason Davis on banjo and vocals. The band recently released their third CD on Rebel Records titled The Heart Of A Song to much critical acclaim. The CD is enjoying great success and is #3 on Bluegrass Music Profiles (BMP) Top 10 National CDs (December 2011), #8 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s National Survey Top 10 (December 2011) and the single, “A Far Cry From Lester And Earl” is #1 on BMP’s Top 30 Hot Singles and the Bluegrass Today chart (December 2011).
