Bentley will be joined by a stellar lineup including Dan Auerbach, the Gibson Brothers, Sierra Hull with Justin Moses, Ralph Stanley II and the Travelin’ McCourys for Tribute to Ralph & Carter Stanley. The concert supports the museum’s recently opened exhibition, Ralph Stanley: Voice from on High, which spotlights the bluegrass artist who performed with his brother for 20 years, until Carter Stanley’s death in 1966. The exhibit is scheduled to run through January 6, 2019.
Stanley passed in 2016 after a seven-decade career that began when he started performing with his older brother, Carter, in the mid-1940s. After Carter’s death, Ralph continued to perform with their bluegrass band, the Clinch Mountain Boys. Stanley is most famously recognized for his haunting “O Death,” which was included on the soundtrack to the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? The song introduced him to a new generation of fans and won Stanley a GRAMMY for Best Male Country Vocal Performance.
A Tribute to Ralph and Carter Stanley tickets go on sale at 10AM Friday at cmatheater.com.
