Ralph Stanley

Outstanding performance by Ralph Stanley. His voice and the song material are so haunting that the audience is struck absolutely silent. 
When he passes, I wonder if the old style Appalachian Blue Grass sound will survive.

Music styles such as this were in danger of simply vanishing as the only way for you to be heard was to be singed by a major company.  With the advent of the Internet, and with home recordings becoming just as good as studio recordings, styles and songs are more apt to be heard by the masses.  This is a very good thing!!
