Episode: Give Me the Banjo: Dr. Ralph Stanley's Museum
There's no denying the power of Ralph Stanley's singing and his distinctive banjo picking, and the recordings he made with his late brother Carter are landmarks of American music. The Stanley Brothers were born and raised in Dickenson County, VA, where the town of Clintwood built the Ralph Stanley Museum and Traditional Mountain Music Center. Old time music has some of its deepest roots here.
