Ralph Stanley cut his first recordings with the Stanley Brothers in 1947, and nearly 70 years later, Stanley
is still one of the leading stars of bluegrass music as well as one of
the towering figures of American roots music. Long a hero in bluegrass
broke through to mainstream popularity in 2000 with his striking
performance of “O Death” in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?, and
since then he’s continued to record and perform, teaching new fans about
the beauty and history of mountain music. On Man of Constant Sorrow, Stanley and his latest edition of the Clinch Mountain Boys are joined by a diverse cast of vocalists who help perform a collection of bluegrass classics; guests include Robert Plant, Dierks Bentley, Ricky Skaggs, Jim Lauderdale, Gillian Welch, Buddy Miller, David Rawlings, Old Crow Medicine Show, and many more.
