Tyminski Wins Grammy
(Host) West Rutland native Dan Tyminski has a share in a Grammy award. Tyminski is a member of the group The Soggy Bottom Boys, which has won a Grammy Award for the song "I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow.''
The song is from the soundtrack to the movie ``O Brother, Where Art Thou?'' The soundtrack won five awards, including album of the year.
In an interview with VPR a few months ago, Tyminski told VPR that he was proud of the "O Brother" project:
(Tyminski) "I think it's pretty easy to misrepresent this style of music. I just think that the "O Brother" project was, they paid so much attention to authenticity. I mean, we used old microphones and old instruments, no headphones, no overdubs. I mean, I think it was just a very, very pure form of roots music and that people enjoyed it. I think is wonderful."
Tyminski was the voice behind star George Clooney, who lip-synched the song in the movie. Tyminski shared the Grammy with Harley Allen and Pat Enright. The award was for best country collaboration.
