Darvin Sturgill

Darvin Sturgill, born and raised in Carter County, Kentucky, recorded some of the sweetest,
most authentic Bluegrass music that you're likely to hear anywhere. Darvin passed away in 2007, but his beloved wife of 51 years,
Alma (McGinnis) Sturgill continues to operate their music store in Olive Hill.

We hope you enjoy these sample tracks from Darvin's CD's, and that you will consider purchasing them.
You will be assured of a lifetime of listening enjoyment.

So play some of these tracks, lean back, and let your imagination take you on a stroll through the green hills of Eastern Kentucky.
This is American traditional music at its very best.
