Ralph Stanley's Concert History

Ralph Edmund Stanley (February 25, 1927 – June 23, 2016), also known as Dr. Ralph Stanley, was an American bluegrass artist, known for his distinctive singing and banjo playing. Stanley began playing music in 1946, originally with his brother Carter as part of "The Stanley Brothers", and most often as the leader of his band, "Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys". He was part of the first generation of bluegrass musicians and was inducted into both the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Honor and the Grand Ole Opry.

I looked on the archives here for Ralph Stanley and also with the Clinch Mountain Boys but in either search did I see the concerts he played at Music Mill Indianapolis in 2008 or the Bluegrass Festival at Indpls Airport in the latter 1990s oh well somebody knows and I cannot find my ticket stubs but he signed a banjo head for me which I was just trying to date when from the festival.
