Saturday, July 14th, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert by Kristi Stanley and Running Blind. Admission to the concert is $10 for adults, $2 for children 6 to 11, under age 6 free.
This performance will be Kristi’s first at the Carter Family Fold. Kristi’s husband Ralph II has graciously continued the tradition his father began of performing often at the Fold. Ralph Stanley and his brother Carter were among a few bands known to have been booked by A.P. Carter to perform at the music shows he started in what he called “The Park” in the 1950s – an outdoor venue at the foot of Clinch Mountain. Ralph II has been a good friend to the Fold and to Rita, and we’re always happy to have him perform. We feel sure Kristi and her band Running Blind will be welcomed warmly and loved by our Fold family as well. The Carters and the Stanleys represent the best music our region has to offer and have been good friends for many years. Come on out and join us for this special performance and give Kristi and her band a heart-felt welcome to the Fold. You know the music will be the very best. There will be dance tunes, amazing vocals, some tremendous instrumentals – something to suit everyone’s taste. Don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. Be sure to bring all your family and friends as well. To learn more about Kristi and her band, go to www.krististanley.com/.
