Podcast: A Tribute to Ralph Stanley
Episode #16-09 | airing 3-02-16

Ralph Stanley Retires

Update: Sadly, Ralph Stanley passed away on June 23 2016 at age 89.

I believe it’s important to give tribute while the subject is still with us. Ralph Stanley turned 89 on February 25th and although he’s lost a step or two he’s still performing selected dates with his band The Clinch Mountain Boys. On this week’s program we’ll hear classics from Carter and Ralph Stanley along with some of the many musicians who have been a part of The Clinch Mountain Boys.
