    Thursday Jan 21 | City Paper

    In the late 1970s, Eric Brace and Peter Cooper, high school students in D.C. and Virginia, respectively, frequently attended The Seldom Scene's Thursday night bluegrass gigs at the Birchmere, but they didn't yet know each other. The Seldom Scene often performed cover songs and invited guests to play with them; visits to the Birchmere and long-gone clubs like the Cellar Door, and hours spent listening to WHFS and records by emerging folk artists helped Brace and Cooper develop an appreciation for the beautiful melodies and acoustic instrumentation of songs by Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Ralph Stanley.

  19. Dr. Ralph StanleyRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 4, 2015 | City Pages

    To borrow a phrase from the Coen brothers' 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou , Ralph Stanley is bona fide; a genuine, 24-carat gold music legend and bluegrass icon who helped define the fledgling genre and is still going strong at 88. Stanley's riveting, hair-raising rendition of the trad-folk standard "O, Death" was a highlight of that memorable film and earned him a Grammy. But the Virginian has been a force of nature since he and his late brother, Carter, founded the Clinch Mountain Boys in the 1940s and fashioned bluegrass' classic high, lonesome vocal style.
