John Rimel (with Brian Rimel)
John Rimel (with Brian Rimel)  John Rimel is an award-winning songwriter from Central Virginia, with credits including songs featured on seven Top 10 Billboard albums, Country Music Song of the Year, and an album under consideration for a 2019 Grammy. John performs his original repertoire (an eclectic mix of Americana, blues, rock, folk, country, bluegrass, and gospel) in an acoustic duo with Brian Rimel. The paired down presentation of piano and acoustic guitar, highlighted by family harmony, affords the listener an intimate musical experience and, best of all, a chance to hear his songs as they were written.
