If I have even just a little sense, I will walk on the main road and my only fear will be of straying from it. Keeping to the main road is easy, but people love to be sidetracked.

^The video says it's someplace in Cincinnati.  Sadly, Ralph Stanley passed away on June 23. 

I really like the Stanley Brothers.   Ralph Stanley is playing the banjo and his impassive-looking brother Carter is singing:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4CtLA1jC20.  Carter looks pretty worried, in fact!

Cool thread. I didn't know Ralph died last week.

I also don't know many other people who have heard of him (have to be a bluegrass fan where he's obviously a big deal), so it's odd to see it mentioned here.

Since CCF is comprised of mostly retired or those who left the IT field, we're about absolutely nothing and therefore quite eclectic.  >:D
