The Gospel Fiddler

by Kyle Dillingham

Growing up on his Grandpa Kokojan's farm in Waukomis, Oklahoma, was the inspiration for Kyle Dillingham's first bluegrass gospel CD. That is where he first heard the music of Bob Wills, which inspired him to play the fiddle. His dear friends, Edith and Wayne Unruh, found him fiddling in a pasture when he was 13. They took him in and began working on his singing and taught him countless bluegrass gospel standards. They performed together as a gospel trio until he went off to college. He treasures the many precious memories and has captured them in this collection.

"Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels wihout knowing it." - Hebrews 13:2

World renowned violin sensation and Oklahoma Musical Ambassador, Kyle Dillingham, has performed his magic in over 25 countries, which has electrified and energized audiences around the world. The Enid, Oklahoma native picked up the violin when he was nine, and eight years later, he gave two featured performances at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. Though he had an attractive offer to continue in Nashville, Kyle always believed that his musical talents could serve Oklahoma best by staying in Oklahoma.

Honored by Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry, Kyle was selected as a recipient of the 2009 Governor's Arts Award, acknowledging his life's work as a violinist, vocalist, musical ambassador for the state of Oklahoma and for his gift to connect with people throughout the world.

As a Creativity Ambassador, he performed as a part of the Creativity World Forum in November 2010, where he received a medal of honor and took the stage with Oklahoma natives, Hanson and Leona Mitchell, among others.

He was a featured performer for the King of Malaysia, the Princess of Thailand, Singapore’s National Day Celebration, and he was televised throughout all of China. A frequent visitor to Washington D.C, he has performed for the Japanese, Thai, Romanian, and Saudi Arabian Ambassadors, to name a few. He has also taken the stage with Roy Clarke, Hank Thompson, Lisa Ling, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Toby Keith and Thailand’s Pop Superstar, Tik Shiro.

Kyle and composer, Callen Clarke, have officially launched an initiative to revive Symphonic Music throughout the United States and the World through the creation and performance of exciting new orchestral repertoire.

Another collaboration spawned Dunham and Dillingham Publishing, which has released the first in a series of language learning programs, “Il Fait Beau”, a revolutionary 10-CD set that utilizes his original music with a thrilling story to learn French twice as fast.

Kyle’s band, Horseshoe Road, is the 2010 International Acoustic Music Awards' Top 3 Finalist. Their latest CD, "Reel-to-Reel", has received glowing reviews and is available through their website, www.horseshoeroad.net.

The Bangkok Post wrote of Kyle’s performance in the musical, “Phar Lor”, “Dillingham can bewitch and conjure a range of emotions from his violin…The music becomes the most intriguing and seductive aspect of this production.”

Paula Kerger, President of PBS, said of Kyle’s exceptional talent, “Ken Burns and I travel all over the United States. After hearing your performance, we turned to each other and agreed that we had witnessed something amazing.”
