More on Larry Sparks

CMT posts a biography sourced from All Music Guide. Here's an excerpt.

Emerging from the Stanley Brothers' Clinch Mountain Boys band, Larry Sparks carried on with the sounds created by bluegrass music's first generation. His style was no knock-off, however. It had a distinctively bluesy tinge anchored by Sparks' own guitar, a comparatively unusual lead instrument in bluegrass, where the triad of mandolin, banjo, and fiddle had defined the musical texture since the genre's early days.
