Ralph Stanley Hailed & Regaled At Yale


Bluegrass legend Ralph Stanley has officially become a Doctor of Music after obtaining an honorary degree from Yale University on Monday (May 19, 2014).

Ralph’s award was presented by Yale president Peter Salovey, a bluegrass enthusiast himself who plays bass in a band called Professors of Bluegrass.

Ralph received his first honorary doctorate in 1976 from Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.

His latest album, Side By Side, is available now for purchase, and pairs him with his son and musical heir, Ralph Stanley II (left). MORE HERE & HERE
