If you haven't been to the Hills of Home festival yet you don't know what you're missing!
This festival is an old time bluegrass
music tradition started by Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing today in his honor. Ralph Stanley II started managing the festival seven
years ago, earning his dad's confidence and trust, and he takes great pride in continuing to honor his dad by making the festival
a true tribute to the legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and continuing to bring talented bluegrass musicians to the stage for the fans.
