Ralph, Requests And Respect

Stanley

Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys played to a full house at the Stagecoach Country Music Festival Saturday April 28, 2012.

The famed “Dr. Ralph Stanley” got big cheers from an otherwise mellow crowd when he reminded the lounging audience he’s 85 years old and then he took requests. Photos HERE

Steve Martin pulled into Stagecoach for a performance Saturday that had him and the Steep Canyon Rangers slotted to play immediately after the bluegrass music patriarch.

"I asked who was going on when, and they said Ralph was opening," Martin said on his tour bus while relaxing on a bench seat with two banjos. "I said, 'No, Ralph Stanley doesn't open for me, I open for him.' So I came out and played a couple of songs and then he went on." MORE HERE
