The multi Grammy Award-nominated western swing and traditional country music band will perform at Clark State on April 30.

The Clark State Performing Arts Center will continue to swing through its 2016-2017 season with an additional concert.

The performing arts center announced Wednesday that the multiple Grammy Award-nominated western swing and traditional country music band The Time Jumpers will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 30. Tickets will go on sale Feb. 17.

The 10-piece band features Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill along with guitarists, bass players, fiddlers and other assorted musicians with years of experience on the country scene.

Clark State PAC Executive Director Adele Adkins believed The Time Jumpers would be a good fit here since she arrived two years ago and was glad to add the concert to this season’s slate.

“Most importantly, the band is top notch and comprised of some of the top musicians in Nashville,” she said. “Added to the popularity of the band is that country superstar Vince Gill is part of the group. They bring in a very diverse audience whose musical tastes are much broader than traditional country.”

Gill performed in Springfield as a solo artist in 2013.

The Time Jumpers have earned two Grammy nominations apiece for each of their three albums. The most recent album, 2016’s “Kid Sister,” is up for Best Americana Album and the title track for Best American Roots Song.

The show’s timing is also good considering Gill recently announced he won’t tour from June 1 through the end of 2017.

“This is a unique opportunity for the entire region to get their Vince Gill fix as he will not be stopping anywhere in the area this summer,” Adkins said.

Tickets will range from $30 to $75 and be available at the Clark State Performing Arts Center box office or online at www.ticketmaster.com.

This is the second show added to Clark State’s season. The first was the Rick Springfield Stripped Down concert coming Feb. 14.

Adkins said another potential show could be added at the beginning of June.
