Larry Stephenson Band

Larry Stephenson describes himself as “singer first and mandolin player second,” and he does a top-notch job at both. A product of one of the most fertile talent-producing regions in America—Virginia—Stephenson ranks among roughly half a dozen preeminent lead high-tenor singers in bluegrass music.

Recorded at the 5th Annual Osborne Brothers Hometown Festival in Hyden, KY, he and his band wow the audience with their bluegrass prowess in their Jubilee appearance.

A regular on the WSM Grand Ole Opry, the Larry Stephenson Band delights audiences wherever it plays. Stephenson himself has been inducted into the Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame, and June 23, 1996 was named “Larry Stephenson Day” by the governor of Virginia.
