@jackofthewood is proud to welcome local legends THE SONS OF RALPH back to the RALPH LEWIS STAGE this SAT 5/11 at 9pm! It’s sure to be a heckuva homecoming!

These bluegrass masters have deep mountain music roots inherited from their father, bluegrass pioneer Ralph Lewis, and honed in a lifetime of playing music together & independently, from local festivals to stages around the globe. 

MARTIN “MARTY” LEWIS & DON LEWIS began their musical education when they were still children and formed their first band when they “hired” Ralph away from Bill Monroe. They continued playing at local spots & events growing up & toured with their dad before pursuing successful music careers of their own.

But, as Ralph famously said, the family that plays together stays together! And the mountains’ call was strong.

In 2001, the boys formed The Sons of Ralph with their father and continued playing their eclectic mix of bluegrass, Cajun, country & rock together until the elder Lewis’ death in 2017. With his music in their veins, Don & Marty continue to lead the SONS into new musical territory that honors their dad’s abiding legacy.

Additional “Sons” have filled out the ranks over the years, with GEORGE BUCKNER & LORI FISHER rounding out the band today.

Y’all get here early for a prime spot, order up some of the best pub fare & libations in town, and get ready for a rockin’, ‘grassy night of unparalleled musicianship & hometown fun! $10 cover at the door.
