Roland Zimmerman Family


We are the Roland Zimmerman Family, a family musical ministry from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We perform gospel music in the bluegrass, old-time country, and folk styles of music. We call our music: “Down Home” gospel music.

Our family consists of: Roland, (dad), and Ryan, (son). Roland sings and plays guitar and banjo at our performances. Prior to singing with the family, Roland performed solo and played banjo for local bluegrass gospel groups. Ryan sings, recites scripture, plays the guitar, mandolin, pedal steel guitar, dobro, and he provides rhythmic accompaniment on washboard, spoons, paper bag, and sanding blocks. Ryan 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! Ryan coded and maintains our website. Roland`s wife and Ryan`s mom, Rhoda, sang and recited poetry. Her smile and outgoing personality was appreciated by our audiences. In January 2018, Rhoda passed from this life from kidney failure.

We have officially been known as the Roland Zimmerman Family since 2004. You can sign up for our email newsletter at: http://

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.
