1964 Newport Folk Festival

More than forty years after this picture was taken, Ralph Stanley continues to bring his unique style of mountain music to audiences across America. Most recently, he starred in the sell-out "Down From the Mountain" concert tour by the musicians from the Grammy-winning soundtrack of the Coen Brothers' film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
