Larry Sparks has been in the business over fifty years, soldiering on, his reputation secure with dozens of top hits and a loyal following. He's always about the most dapper man in the lineup and his band is carefully chosen to support his fine singing and surprisingly good flat picking.
The Lonesome River Band is a MACC regular, always bringing their brand of murder, love rejected, and lost souls to the mix. Many people yearn for the early days of LRB, but for us, this band is ours. They're pretty much the band they were when we started in bluegrass, but banjo great and leader Sammy Shelor has continued to improve his personnel with each move. We're always glad to see them and hear their brand.
