Thread Name: Review: Ralph Stanley performances
Subject: RE: Ralph Stanley & CMB's, Havelock, Ontario
ARRGH! - I'm going to be out of the country. I would go a very long way to see Ralph Stanley. Charmion and I saw him play at Charlottesville, VA in 1998. I'd never heard of him, but I saw an poster for an intriguing sounding concert featuring him and the CMB, and a blues musician named (if I recall correctly) John Morgan. Ralph Stanley and his band played the first half of the show and John Morgan the second half. Later we heard Ralph Stanley perform with the Down from the Mountain tour in Ottawa. I really like his solo album, which has lots of trad ballads and gospel songs.

The line up for Havelock looks great.
