The Music of the Stanley Brothers
June 13, 2019 : 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Join us on June 13, 2019 at 6:00pm for “The Music of the Stanley Brothers,” a gathering of artists to talk about the impact of the legendary Stanley Brothers on their music and lives. Admission is free.
After the gathering we will have a live show with Stanley Brothers All Star Band, featuring Ralph Stanley II, Junior Sisk, Don Rigsby, Dewey Brown, Tommy Brown, Randall Hibbitts. Tickets for the show are $20 advance, $25 after May 31, and $12 for children 12 and under.
This special gathering of musicians who cut their teeth on the music of Carter and Ralph, the Stanley Brothers, was one of the most popular concerts from the 2018 Homecoming, and deserved to be shared again. As members of Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys or as musicians with their own careers, these artists have carried the music of the Stanley’s to whole new generations just now discovering the style of music that Dr. Ralph always referred to as “mountain music.”
At 6:00 pm the artists will gather on stage to share what the music of the Stanley Brothers means to them and the lasting impact of one of the earliest and most important groups in bluegrass history.
Before, during, and after the concert enjoy browsing the authentic Floyd Country Store, a gathering place in the community for over 100 years and home to the world-famous Friday Night Jamboree.
