Dr. Ralph Stanley

Goodbye, Dr. Ralph Stanley.

On June 23 "Dr. Ralph" died at his home in southwestern Virginia. Born in February of 1927, Ralph was the last man standing of the original pioneers of bluegrass music (Bill Monroe. Flatt & Scruggs. The Stanley Brothers). He was 89 years old.

The latest sun is sinking fast, my race is nearly run
My strongest trials now are past, my triumph is begun

O come Angel Band, come & around me stand
O bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home

Watch Dr. Ralph sing it / Hear the 1955 original

Chime in on this topic with your favorite memories of Ralph and well-wishes for his family.
