Larry Sparks and the Lonesome Ramblers

Larry Sparks

A career which began in the mid-1960s as a guitarist with the Stanley Brothers, Larry Sparks is among the most widely-known and respected touring musicians in bluegrass and gospel music today.

Spanning over four decades, Larry has released over 60 albums and continues to delight countless fans with his soulful vocals and unparalleled musicianship. A well-decorated musician, Larry has been recognized as the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Male Vocalist of the Year, awarded Album of the Year and Recorded Event of the Year, and was recently inducted into the IBMA’s Bluegrass Hall of Fame. While Sparks is most definitely a stylist and his approach to the music is more than a style, it is real with no gimmicks and after fifty years in the spotlight. Larry is still on a roll and creating some of his best music.

"Larry Sparks is bluegrass music's Ray Charles, no one can touch him. He is an absolute original"- Alison Krauss
