Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys
Mon., Oct. 21, 8 p.m. 2013
More than likely, this will be the last Triangle appearance by Dr. Ralph Stanley, the bluegrass pioneer who enjoyed a popular resurrection thanks to O Brother, Where Art Thou? But when Stanley visited The ArtsCenter in January, you couldn't help but feel a bit embarrassed for him, as he struggled to remember lyrics and take a few elderly swipes at the banjo. Out of reverence for his legacy and your memory of it, this is a show to skip.
