Travelin' McCourys Announce Midwest Installment of The Bluegrass Ball

After the huge success of the March installments of the Bluegrass Ball, The Travelin' McCourys are proud to announce a triumphant return to the area - and this time its a 3 day run!  They'll be starting out on January 20th in Bloomington, IN at the Bluebird with The Travelin' McCourys, Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band), and Bill Nershi (Stringcheese Incident and Emmitt-Nershi Band).  Next they'll be heading to Chicago for the Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival (w/ Travelin' McCourys and Jeff Austin) closing out a jam packed day with The Del McCoury Band, David Grisman and others.  Closing out the weekend the Bluegrass Ball will hit St. Louis at the Old Rock House w/ Travelin' McCourys and guests Jeff Austin and Bill Nershi.
 
Chances are if you’ve been to a bluegrass festival the memories most prevalent in your mind are not so much that of the “scheduled” performers but more of the impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations.  It’s with that spirit that the McCoury family decided to embark on a traveling bluegrass festival that they are calling The Bluegrass Ball.
 
Ask most string musicians young or old and they will mostly likely tell you they either want to play with the McCoury family if they have not already.  The McCourys are known for not only their ability to play with just about anyone but also for actually doing it!  Due to this willingness to play with other musicians, the McCoury family is known as heavy weights on the festival and bluegrass scene, even having their own wildly successful festival “Delfest”.  The McCoury’s decided to not only play in this festival but also promote it themselves making the festival on wheels more accessible to fans by playing more intimate venues that collaborate in giving fans a great value at a reasonable price.
