Where’s Amy?: Sounds check

0

“Where’s Amy?” had the opportunity to meet music legend Dr. Ralph Stanley at the Center for the Performing Arts. For more than six decades, Stanley has been one of the most influential artists of all time. Born Feb. 25, 1927, Dr. Stanley is part of the first generation of bluegrass musicians and has been inducted in the International Blue Grass Music Hall of Honor and the Grand Ole Opry. His work was featured in the 2000 film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” which won him a 2002 Grammy award in the category of Best Male Country Vocal Performance. Palladium guests were treated to a wonderful meet and greet before his concert which included his grandson Nathan Stanley, lead singer for The Clinch Mountain Boys. Bloomington popular artist Kim Robins and The 40 Year Late band were on hand too and allowed ‘Where’s Amy?” to attend a sound check before the big show. Proceeds from all ticket sales went to help the Wheeler Mission. The best part of the evening was when Dr. Stanley whispered in my ear that he awarded the National Medal of Arts, which is the highest honor for artistic excellence. He then pointed to the staff of Wheeler Mission and said he was honored to be playing at the beautiful Palladium for such a worthy cause.
