Dr. Ralph Stanley

Thanks to our wonderful friends at WDVX (quite possibly in our humble opinion one of the best radio stations in the world) we got a chance recently to catch the legend that is Dr. Ralph Stanley.

Born in Stratton, Virginia in 1927, Ralph Stanley and his older brother Carter formed the Stanley Brothers and the Clinch Mountain Boys.

Dr. Stanley has gone on to carry the torch for bluegrass music including winning a Grammy in 2002.

Accompanied by his grandson Nathan who definitely has the family talent gene and of course the amazingly talented Clinch Mountain boys the show was incredible. Playing classic bluegrass favorites that cover the span of decades with a soul and grace that could not be imitated once again we were in awe the entire evening.

By all mean if you get a chance to catch him on his Farewell tour you should jump at the chance. I know we are well glad we did!!
