R. Zimmerman Family Music





The Roland Zimmerman Family Musical Ministry is a family ministry from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania that performs bluegrass, old-time country, and folk styles of gospel music. We call our music: “Down Home” Gospel Music.

Our family consists of: Roland, (dad); Rhoda, (mom); and Ryan, (son). Roland sings and plays guitar, (and sometimes banjo), at our performances. He also plays all the instruments in our soundtracks, as well as producing and engineering our recordings. Rhoda sings and recites poetry. You will find her attending our sales table. Ryan sings, recites scripture, and strums a toy guitar. (Ryan gets most of the attention from the audiences!)

Roland Zimmerman has performed with various bluegrass gospel groups. In 1997, he started to perform solo at local retirement homes, using a vocal harmonizer to create harmony vocals to accompany himself. Roland produced, engineered and performed on 2 gospel music recordings during his solo performing.

Rhoda Zimmerman was first involved in the background of her husband’s ministry by tending the sales table, setup, booking, etc. When Ryan decided to go onstage, she went along onstage to give him guidance. She then decided that while she was onstage anyway, she might as well take part in performing.

Ryan Zimmerman has been singing with his father since he was 2 years old. His musical interests were noticed when, as an infant, he got into his mother’s kettle cabinet, and getting the smallest saucepan, he held it like a banjo, tapping on the copper bottom! He was encouraged to go onstage by personnel at a local retirement home when 

they found out that he likes to mimic his father by strumming a badminton racket around the house. In his first several appearances, he sang and strummed the racket! We soon bought him a guitar.

We have officially been known as the Roland Zimmerman Family since 2004. We are available to perform weekday evenings, weekends, and holidays. We do a limited number of weekday daytime programs. We perform on a freewill basis. Photos and recordings can be purchased at our concerts. Free booklets and tracts are also available.

It is our desire that the saints of God would be strengthened and inspired and that sinners would see their need of repentance and salvation in Jesus Christ through this musical ministry.
