Bluegrass from the heart of Tennessee, The Travelin’ McCourys include sons of the legendary bluegrass icon Del McCoury. One of the most voted-for groups in audience surveys, the group will instigate swinging and finger snapping on Tuesday, Jan. 21.
Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, and Alan Bartram on bass, this is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass – The Del McCoury Band. No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive acoustic music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie and Rob continue their father’s work – a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. Based in tradition, the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful but they also bring something fresh and rejuvenating to the stage.
Recently the McCourys debuted the widely successful festival on wheels called The Bluegrass Ball, bringing spontaneous live collaborations, the hallmark of the McCourys, to clubs across the country. The band has a confidence that comes with having paid their dues with 20 years on the bluegrass road. They are known not only for their individual prowess on their instruments but also the tight rhythm, the soulful material and the confidence in taking bluegrass from the safety of the shore into uncharted waters.
The Travelin’ McCourys are quickly becoming known among fans and musical icons alike, collaborating with the likes of Vince Gill, The Allman Brothers, Phish, and Warren Haynes, Steve Earle, Dierks Bentley, Yonder Mountain String Band and more.
