Junior Blankenship Band with Lonesome Will Mullins to Carter Fold August 18

Junior BlankenshipHiltons, VA -- Junior Blankenship was raised where mountain bluegrass music was a corner stone to the family culture. Junior’s father, the late Hillard Blankenship, drove the tour bus for bluegrass legend Dr. Ralph Stanley many years. Junior and his father formed a band called the Rocky Mountain Boys. Soon after that, Ralph Stanley called Junior and asked him to become a Clinch Mountain Boy after Keith Whitley left their group. Junior was only seventeen at the time. He stayed with Dr. Stanley until 1989. Since then he has played with such greats as Ralph Stanley II, Ernie Thacker and Route 23, and Sammy Adkins and the Sandy Hook Mountain Boys. Junior’s unique style of cross picking earned him the privilege of recording with such greats as George Jones, Vince Gill, Emmy Lou Harris, Tom T. Hall, Dwight Yoakam, and Bill Monroe. Still playing the old traditional style music with a mix of more modern music, Junior has formed his own band – the Junior Blankenship Band./Images/JuniorBlankenship0812.jpg
