The Del McCoury Band is back!! We couldn’t be more thrilled to have them with us again this Fall, imparting their legendary magic & eternal youth onto the Strawberry Stage!
For more than 50 years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans, as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre. McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time & late night talk shows, to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands.
By the 90’s, the Del McCoury Band was on top of the bluegrass world, along the way giving birth to a more startling phenomenon: the emergence of the group onto the larger musical scene as a unique torchbearer for the entire sweep of bluegrass & its history. By the second half of that decade, the acclaim (and Del's open-mindedness), put McCourys onstage jams with Phish, bringing the Del McCoury Band's fierce musicianship & its leader's instantaneous, easygoing connection with listeners to new arenas. Yet while reaching out to almost unimaginable audiences, Del's music retains its signature characteristics. These days, they are a regular at the spectacular Bonnaroo Music Festival, & Del's namesake Festival, DelFest. DelFest has quickly become one of the premier string band events in the country. Del might be 78, but he's singing better than ever and showing no signs of slowing down.
