Written by 

art sonsofralphThe First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Series at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center will get underway with a concert by the Sons of Ralph at 7 p.m. Oct. 4 on the ground floor of WCU’s H.F. Robinson Administration Building.

The group’s performance will be followed by an 8 p.m. jam session, in which local musicians are invited to participate.

The Sons of Ralph features band patriarch Ralph Lewis, a Madison County native who turned 84 in April. Lewis was a member of Bill Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys for two years in the mid-1970s and left Monroe’s group to perform with his sons, Marty Lewis and Don Lewis. Joining Ralph Lewis and his sons in the current Sons of Ralph are “Cousin” Steve Moseley and “Brother Oz” Ozzie Orengo Jr.

The concerts and jam sessions will continue at the Mountain Heritage Center through the fall and winter, with programs from 7-9 p.m. on the first Thursday of each month. The First Thursday concerts and jams at the Mountain Heritage Center are free and open to everyone.
