The Larry Stephenson Band

The Larry Stephenson Band can always be counted on for a first rate performance. Larry recently celebrated his twentieth year with his own band after many years with several Virginia-based bands. He was recently inducted into the Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame. His pure tenor voice combine with a strong band, featuring the great Kenny Ingram on banjo, is a delight as he sings his many bluegrass hits, plenty of gospel music, and fresh, new songs.

Plan B

 Plan B was initiated as a fill-in band two years ago when they were needed as an emergency replacement for the Gibson Brothers. They turned out to be an inspired choice. Anchored by three members of Seldom Scene  (Dudley Connell, Fred Travers, and Ronnie Simpkins) and completed by Rickie Simpkins and Larry Stephenson, the band played from a range of material from the two bands plus some old standards of the Johnson Mountain Boys. They have since played together again at the 2013 Apple Fest in Winchester. Their performance was a real delight and is being presented on Saturday by design.
