Dr. Ralph Stanley
February 25th, 1927 – June 23rd, 2016
Originally booked as Dr. Ralph Stanley himself along with his grandson’s band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, this show is now A Tribute to Dr. Ralph Stanley featuring The Clinch Mountain Boys and bluegrass/country singer-songwriter great (and friend of Ralph Stanley) Jim Lauderdale.
When bluegrass legends come to mind there is one star that shines above them all… the legendary icon Dr. Ralph Stanley. Originally booked to perform himself with his and his grandson Nathan’s band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, Dr. Ralph died on June 23. Although he was devastated by the passing, Nathan vowed the music will go on and will be performing with his band and featured vocalist and friend/collaborator of Ralph Stanley, Jim Lauderdale. Jim is an American country, bluegrass, and Americana singer-songwriter. Since 1986, he has released 23 studio albums, including collaborations with artists such as Dr. Ralph Stanley, Buddy Miller, and Donna the Buffalo. A "songwriter's songwriter," his songs have been recorded by dozens of artists, notably George Strait, Gary Allan, Elvis Costello, Blake Shelton, the Dixie Chicks, Vince Gill, and Patty Loveless. “A Tribute to my Paw Paw, Dr. Ralph Stanley” features the music that made Dr. Ralph a legend and earned him Grammy awards, including such hits as Man of Constant Sorrow, Oh Death, Pretty Polly, Rank Stranger, Angel Band and many more. Not to be missed, “A Tribute to my Paw Paw” will be a special evening of beloved bluegrass and stories of the late, great Dr. Ralph Stanley.
