    I absolutely love and admire Ralph Stanley. He is such a talented man, and is still an amazing performer! I absolutely love to hear this man sing. He has one of those trademark voices that you can recognize any where. He is such a great singer. He's also very talented with musical instruments. He can play the banjo, clawhammer, and the guitar. And he does a wonderful job on all three of them. If Elvis is king of Rock n roll, then Ralph Stanley is the king of Blugrass. He's a legend never to be forgotten! I love hearing him and always will.moreless
