Black Diamonds from the coal fields
The Black Diamond Band is from the coal mine country of southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia and their sound is true to the traditional high lonesome bluegrass sound of the Allegheny Highlands. This area was home to the Carter Family, and Ralph & Carter Stanley and the Clinch Mountian Boys. Today the area is a hotbed of bands playing in the traditional style, the Black Diamond Band is one of the bands leading the way.
