Travelin' McCourys announce midwest run of Bluegrass Ball shows

The Travelin’ McCourys are excited to announce their next round of the wildly popular touring festival aptly named The Bluegrass Ball.  The Bluegrass Ball held their inaugural event just over 2 years ago in the Midwest, so it seems appropriate that the latest 3 day run would return to its Midwestern roots.  For all 3 shows Bill Nershi of String Cheese Incident will join The Travelin’ McCourys on guitar and each city will be joined by some of the hottest regional pickers.  The Bluegrass Ball was born out of the spirit of bluegrass festivals – the special memories made of impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations that leave you with a smile on your face and awe in your ears.

Ask most string musicians both young or old and they will likely tell you they 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 for actually doing it!  Due to this willingness, the McCoury family is known as heavy weights on the festival and bluegrass scene – even having their own successful festival, Delfest.

Dates and lineup below – keep your eyes and ears open for additional announcements!
