Ralph Stanley is one of the founding fathers of bluegrass or old-time mountain music. His memoir is called "Man of Constant Sorrow: My Life and Times," and was written with music journalist Eddie Dean. Stanley talks with Steve Paulson about his family, his music and his concern with death, and we hear lots of his music.
