Stan Elmore, 1957-2013
The staff of the Missouri Folk Arts Program extends heartfelt sympathies to the family and friends of Stan Elmore.
Mr. Elmore was a master artist in the Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program in 1996, when he taught shape-note singing to apprentice Steve Ramsey (both pictured above). Mr. Elmore’s brother Johnny also taught shape-note singing in TAAP in 1991, and those lessons were recorded by Gordon McCann, archived now at Missouri State University Archives. Rest in Peace.
