Considered ?one of the most important country musicians in the world,? Ralph Stanley has been honing his art since the 1940s. With nearly 200 albums, including his latest A Distant Land To Roam: Songs of The Carter Family, and three GRAMMYŽ Awards to his credit, Stanley?s music is steeped in the rich culture of Appalachia and delivered in a high, forlorn tenor that seems to convey all the world?s grief and regret. Opening the show, Tres Chicas (Caitlin Cary, Lynn Blakey and Tonya Lamm) sing beautiful harmonies that convey sweet heartache and hope. Free.
