Ralph Stanley, Whose Mountain Music Gave Rise to Bluegrass, Dies at 89
Mr. Stanley sang high tenor and played banjo in the group. His brother sang the lead parts in a melancholy timbre and played guitar. Performing a mix of blues, ballads, hymns and breakdowns, the Stanley Brothers popularized a number of songs that would become bluegrass standards, among them "Mountain Dew," "Little Maggie" and "Angel Band."
