Dr. Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys

This bluegrass patriarch returns to the Hylton Center for an unforgettable evening of music that will warm the hearts and touch the souls of bluegrass fans across the generations. Hailing from rural southwest Virginia, Dr. Ralph Stanley has spent over six decades honoring and preserving traditional bluegrass, old-time, and mountain music with his celebrated band, The Clinch Mountain Boys, which he formed with his brother Carter in 1946. This octogenarian from Appalachia continues to tour with vigor and remains one of the most popular acts in bluegrass and country music today. His pure authenticity and his remarkable gift for creating “hard, starkly beautiful music,” (Newsweek) have earned him an extraordinary collection of accolades in the last few decades, including three Grammy Awards, induction into the Grand Ole Opry, and the National Medal of Arts. Don’t miss this living legend, whom NPR’s Fresh Air calls “easily the most eminent bluegrass singer in the world.”
