Tribute to Dr. Ralph Stanley featuring Don Rigsby, Nathan Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys (Episode #1410)

KQED Life: Sun, Oct 19, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

Don Rigsby has remained true to his mountain roots and made his own marks as a powerful tenor and distinctive mandolin player. He has a life-long passion for the music of Dr. Ralph Stanley. His latest release, 'Doctor's Orders: A Tribute to Ralph Stanley', are all songs Stanley recorded throughout his 67-year (and counting) career. Some are rare gems the Old Master seldom or never performed in his stage shows. Don is a two-time Grammy nominee and two-time winner of the SPBGMA's Traditional Male Vocalist of the Year awards. Nathan Stanley is the grandson of Dr. Ralph Stanley, Nathan has been called the "Prince Of Bluegrass" and an heir to the Stanley Music Royalty. His new album, 'The Legacy Continues', salutes his bluegrass forebears and introduces some newer tunes that have all the earmarks of enduring, including the heartfelt self penned song "Papaw, I Love you". The Clinch Mountain Boys has been the name of Dr. Stanley touring band since he and his brother started performing together as The Stanley Brothers in 1946. The band has produced some of Country and Bluegrass music's biggest stars including Ricky Skaggs, Larry Sparks and the late Keith Whitley. The Clinch Mountain Boys will be the backup band for both Nathan and Don for this historic WoodSongs broadcast. About Dr. Ralph Stanley: Dr. Stanley is the legendary icon, that for over 6 decades, has become one of the most influential artists of all time. In 1946, along with his older brother Carter Stanley, they formed the legendary Stanley Brothers duo. The Stanley Brothers and the Clinch Mountain Boys became one of the most popular brother acts in Country Music history. After Carter's death, Stanley shifted the band's musical emphasis from hard-driving bluegrass to an older, sadder, less adorned mountain style. In 2002, Stanley received his first ever Grammy Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance of the haunting rendition of "Oh Death" that was featured in the movie and soundtrack for "O Brother Where Art Thou".
