Jeff DaltonHello, I'm Jeff Dalton, and I sing back up, and play Mandolin with the group. I was born at home in the Trimble community in Western Pulaski County Kentucky. Being the 8th of 9 children wasn't an easy task. My fondest memories were those evenings and weekends my family spent "playing music" My mother, Stella played guitar. Robert, my Dad played banjo. My oldest brother Bobby also played Banjo. It was Bobby that bought me my first mandolin, a Gibson when I was 12 years old. We formed our own family band and played at local Churches until the early 70's when I joined Clyde & Marie Denny, then later became a part of the Rambling Mountaineers with Carl Story. While with Carl, I enjoyed touring many states as well as Canada, and was fortunate to be a part of the Bicentennial playing for President Ford at the Smithsonian Institute. After leaving Carl Story, my brothers Randy, Bobby and myself joined The Bluegrass Meditations. During the time with the Meditations, I served the Lord singing at most of the Bill Monroe festivals through out the United States. In 1982, two major changes took place in my life. I met, fell in love and married my wife Debbie, and brother Bobby moved to Illinois. In 1983, with part of the group living so far away, the Meditations disbanded. During the years to follow, I often filled in with other groups, and several attempts were made to reunite The Daltons. Finally in 1994 we were successful in finding the Lead singer the Lord meant for us to have. Praise the Lord, for now we may serve Him with our Ministry in song. I thank the Lord for his patients with me. I have traveled the wrong road many times but through His love, and the blood He shed at Calvary, I am now a Child of God. He has blessed me with the ability to write songs, play my instruments and sing His praises. Glory to God for without Him, I am nothing.

Walking With Jesus
