Friday was the opening of the November 2017 Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival. Steve Gulley and New Pinnacle opened the show at the Roberts Centre in Wilmington, Ohio. Steve presents a mix of traditional bluegrass and classic country music.
Ralph Stanley II & the Clinch Mountain Boys took the stage next. Ralph is continuing the mountain music of his father, Doctor Ralph Stanley. Dale Ann Bradley followed with her fine band. Dale Ann is a wonderful song bird in our music.
Host band, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers wowed the crowd as they always do. Joe, Joe’s family, the Ramblers, and their families make sure that everyone has a good time at SOIMF. Ashley Davis joined the Clinch Mountain Boys to fiddle a tune. She is a member of Kristi Stanley’s band. Then Dale Ann Bradley joined Steve Gulley to take us back to the days when they sang together at Renfro Valley.
The Lonesome River Band closed out the show. Sammy Shelor keeps putting together a group together that is always entertaining.
