With a world-class ensemble known for eloquent harmonies, McCoury is one of the greatest ambassadors for traditional bluegrass today. For fifty years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans. 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 TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands. Today, the Del McCoury Band enjoys the praise of traditional bluegrass lovers and tie-dyed clad “Del-Heads” alike. Del has proven not to be a relic of bluegrass music’s past, but an architect of its future.
