Ralph Stanley II

When: Fri., Nov. 14, 8 p.m. 2014

Seeing Ralph Stanley perform at The ArtsCenter in 2013 was one of that year’s bigger letdowns. The then-86-year-old struggled to keep it together, with his band members and grating grandson Nathan Stanley doing all they could to keep him afloat. Between Dr. Ralph and Nathan is Ralph Stanley II, who’s actually built a career of his own—also around bluegrass, but with an acoustic guitar. He may not be the most renowned (Dr. Ralph) or the most polished (Nathan) of the Stanleys, but he does carry the family tradition forward. —Allison Hussey
