Ralph Stanley Touring

Bluegrass legend finishing duet album with women country artists.

After recording more than a dozen duets in Nashville with prominent women artists, bluegrass patriarch Ralph Stanley is on the road for the rest of this year.

The banjo player and singer, known for preserving such musical classics as “Daddy’s Wildwood Flower” (RealAudio excerpt), has a song on the soundtrack O Brother, Where Art Thou? and recently released a compilation of his standards, Man of Constant Sorrow.

On the new duets album, Clinch Mountain Sweethearts, due for release later this year, Stanley sings with such women artists as Dolly Parton, Lucinda Williams, Sara Evans and Joan Baez.
