Ralph Stanley Bluegrass Festival

If you're looking for some good strumming Memorial Day weekend, look no further than Coeburn, VA.

The Ralph Stanley Bluegrass Festival is the place to be for traditional mountain music. Headliners include Larry Sparks and the Lonesome Ramblers, Charlie Sizemore Band/Reeltime Travelers, Jim Lauderdale, Gillian Welch and David Rawlings(a personal favorite), and of course, Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys.

For $100, you can camp all weekend, or come just for the day for about $30.

This ain't your crunchy, hippie newgrass music. This is bluegrass from the mountains, written from the heart, played from the soul, and it's real.
