Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys (Oktoberfest)
The Clinch Mountain Boys currently live in scattered communities in the mountains of Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky. They meet up in Coeburn, where their tour bus is parked and head out on the road. Their typical work week starts on Wednesday or Thursday and wraps up on Sunday, when they normally head in home for a couple days of well-deserved rest before starting out all over again.

Ralph Stanley and The Clinch Mountain Boys:
Friday 9:15 to 10:45pm
Ralph Stanley is one of the last living founders of a distinctly American art form, which blends rural-based lyrics with fluid, jazz-like instrumental improvisations. He has won numerous Grammy Awards and was presented with the prestigious National Medal of Arts. Perhaps most impressively, Stanley has recorded over 170 albums and was famously featured on the multi-platinum soundtrack to the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?

From his early years playing under the tutelage of bluegrass patriarch Bill Monroe to his much lauded stint in Old & In the Way with Jerry Garcia and his subsequent breakout as both a solo performer and bandleader, Rowan has built a devoted, international fan base through his continuous stream of original recordings, collaborative projects, and live performances.
Johnson Brothers Band
Friday and Saturday 6:00-8:00pm
The Johnson Brothers are Lexington’s serious minded Classic Rock stylists. Known for tackling the “deep tracks,” expect them to deliver a fun-filled two night stand with favorites from the 1960s and 1970s.
