Ralph Stanley to Rock With Elton John

Stanley, Ralph

What would Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” sound like with a banjo solo? For that matter, could Elton pull off the mournful melody of Dr. Ralph Stanley’s “O Death”?

Producer T Bone Burnett's latest genre-bending musical collaboration—he produced Alison Krauss and Robert Plant’s Raising Sand—will pair the legendary Ralph with ivory ticklers Elton and Leon Russell, rock singer/songwriter Elvis Costello, Americana singer/songwriter Neko Case and actor Jeff Bridges for T Bone’s Speaking Clock Revue.

The all-star ensemble will perform on Oct. 24 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif., during Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit, which assists the Bridge School, an organization dedicated to educating students with speech and physical impairments.
