Lennie Centers and Centerline
A native of Eastern Kentucky, Lennie Centers was raised on bluegrass music. His father, the late Roy Lee Centers, was the lead singer for Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys for several years. Lennie traveled with his father until his father's untimely death. Read the full story here about the life and times of Roy Lee Centers told by his son Lennie. The Life Legacy and untimely death of Roy Lee Centers by Bluegrass Today.
Lennie's first professional work was traveling every weekend with the Goins Brothers. He soon formed the band, Silver Creek, with fellow members Barry Crabtree, Bill Crabtree, Chris Miller, and Porter Corume. Silver Creek is often credited for a new bluegrass sound heard in today's bluegrass music. In 1992, he toured with Timmy Cline, son of Curly Ray Cline, who alongside Roy Lee was a member of the Clinch Mountain Boys. Lennie, his son Roy, Scott Napier, Gary Skaggs, Keith Prater, and Mike Creech came together in 1996 to form Vintage Sound. Opening for Ricky Skaggs, they were the first band to ever play the stage at the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg, KY. In 2002, he and his son Roy also toured with Joe Isaacs.
Lennie has shared the stage with numerous noted bluegrass musicians including Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe, Marty Stewart, Allison Brown, Stewart Duncan, the late Keith Whitley, Lester Flatt and many others. Inspired by the mountain sound of Ralph Stanley, Clarence White, and Tony Rice with the drive of Elvis Presley and the arrangement style of the Beatles, Lennie's style is constantly evolving...will play any where.
