42nd Annual Carter Fold Festival August 5 & 6

Carter Family FoldHiltons, VA -- In the classic mountain ballad “Rank Strangers,” the narrator bemoans the changes that have occurred in his cherished home place. The fact that those changes do occur was brought home to music lovers worldwide with the death of Dr. Ralph Stanley recently. The Stanley Brothers version of “Rank Strangers” is undoubtedly the gold standard for this haunting ballad. Author Thomas Wolfe, himself from Appalachia, wrote that “you can’t go home again.” Some folks may say that modernization happens slower in Appalachia – and it does. When it does happen, it can feel as though the sacred musical traditions we grew up with are fading away.
