Distinguished Performance Series Opens
With Legendary Bluegrass Performer Ralph Stanley
The Distinguished Performance Series opens its 2008-09 season with Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys on Thursday, September 18 at 7 p.m. in the College Activities Center. One of the last living founders of traditional American bluegrass, Ralph Stanley has been performing since 1946.
This Grammy-award winning mountain music patriarch has written and performed songs that have become bluegrass standards, has recorded over 170 albums, and his Clinch Mountain Boys has nourished many young artists including Ricky Skaggs.
Stanley is featured on the best selling album "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," was the first artist of the new millennium to be inducted into the historic Grand Ole Opry, and has received numerous other honors. For more information visit: www.drralphstanely.com.
