Another Night of BluegrassAnother Night of Bluegrass featuring Larry Stephenson will be held in the Thomasville Municipal Auditorium on Saturday, March 23 at 7:30 p.m. Presented by the City of Thomasville and WTUF-FM, Another Night of Bluegrass is an eighteen-year local tradition treasured by Thomasville music lovers.

Highly regarded as one of Bluegrass music’s most recognizable and finest high lead and tenor vocalists, Larry Stephenson has been headlining festivals and concerts for 30 years. He formed The Larry Stephenson Band in 1989 while living in his home state of Virginia.

Many appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and RFD-TV has made The Larry Stephenson Band a fan favorite all across the US and Canada.

Born in Harrisonburg, VA and raised in King George, VA, Larry’s Dad put a mandolin in his hand at the age of 5 and by the age of 11, Larry cut his first record. Graduating high school in 1976, Larry and his Dad had a very popular regional band for 3 years, performing at festivals, concerts and performing as regulars at The Wheeling Jamboree in Wheeling, WV. Larry credits the rich music scene of Virginia and Washington, DC for much of his musical success, having seen and heard many first generation bluegrass performers in person and on the radio.

Throughout his 30 years of fronting his own band, and over 40 years as a major touring performer, Larry Stephenson has been recognized and awarded by fans and peers in the bluegrass industry. With a move to Nashville, TN in 1992, the band became regulars at the Grand Ole Opry. In 1996, the Virginia Folk Music Association inducted Stephenson into the Virginia Country Music Hall of Fame. Since that time, he has garnered numerous International Bluegrass Music Awards and The Society for The Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America nominations and awards. In 2018, The Society for The Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America inducted Larry into their Hall of Greats.
