RockyGrass 2014 Archives: James King Band

RockyGrass Archives 2014: Growing up in the cradle of country music, southern Virginia's Carroll County, James King found his inspiration in the gospel music of the Stanley Brothers. James learned to match the inflections and emotions in Carter's vocals, and by the 1980s was a featured member of Ralph Stanley's Clinch Mountain Boys. Joining James for his first RockyGrass since 1999 are Rodney Worley (mandolin), Merle Johnson (fiddle), Mitch Walker (banjo), and John Marquess (bass).
