The year 2016 sure went by fast, for me anyhow. One of the year's events that sticks in my mind was the passing of an Appalachian cultural icon, 'Old Time Mountain Style Music' banjo player and singer, Dr. Ralph Stanley. "just plain ol' American Music".

" Ralph Edmund Stanley (February 25, 1927 – June 23, 2016), also known as Dr. Ralph Stanley, was an American bluegrass artist, known for his distinctive singing and banjo playing. Stanley began playing music in 1946, originally with his brother Carter as part of The Stanley Brothers, and most often as the leader of his band, The Clinch Mountain Boys."

Dr. Ralph Stanley will be missed......
