Surprise Visitors from the Mysterious East October 2013

There is seldom a dull moment here at Saga Musical Instruments! Earlier this week we had some surprise visitors from the Mysterious East. Nearly every year for as long as most people can remember, Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys hitch up the wagon and make a tour way out West. This year the Boys decided to stop by and see us at Saga.

They had just finished performing at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park in front of a couple of hundred thousand Bluegrass Music Lovers. There were thick clouds of grey smoke wafting across those meadows and the Boys noticed that it didn’t smell like any backyard barbeque that they had been to recently!

Ralph Stanley understands the relationship that we all have to the music. The fans, the musicians and the music industry itself are all a part of the same family that keeps the music vibrant.No one has done more than Dr. Ralph to keep the music of the mountains alive, but we are all a part of that continuing process. We appreciate our partnership with Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys and we appreciate our partnership with you.

When you’re in the neighborhood, stop by, just like the Clinch Mountain Boys did, and pick one with us…or give us a call: 1-800-289-7242 (1-800-BUY-SAGA)
