The greatest thing about The Travelin' McCourys, or Del’s Boys, is that they are so open to collaboration. They were bread in a family of musical versatility that never limited any possibility if they could do something interesting.

Special Guests join The Travelin' McCourys for their Bluegrass Ball

This weekend The Travelin’ McCourys hit the Midwest with their popular touring festival – The Bluegrass Ball.  For all 3 shows (Madison, Bloomington IN, and Chicago) they were joined by String Cheese Incident's Bill Nershi on guitar.  The Bluegrass Ball was born out of the spirit of bluegrass festivals – the special memories made of impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations.

Hot Rize-Pickin' up the Pieces | Review and Photos

Unlike the Martha White “self-rising” flour, it takes more than one ingredient, or individual, to lift the spirits of communities affected by natural disasters. On a brisk night in Boulder, Hot Rize brought together a closely linked ensemble of local musicians to do just that. Recognized as a bluegrass-haven, Boulder County hosts an array of talented musicians.

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 b

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/30/2012 | Review

It really has been quite a journey for Colorado’s String Cheese Incident. There are small and humble beginnings for these fellas who have now gone on to influence a solid generation of bluegrass-fusion bands. Michael Kang, Bill Nershi, Michael Travis, and Keith Moseley talk about how in the beginning they would play unplugged next to the ski lifts at Telluride and Crested Butte, Colorado, hoping to score a free lift ticket and gain some local clout.

String Cheese Incident | 1st Bank Center | 12/29/2012 | Review

A New Year’s Eve Party is much like the Super Bowl. A highly anticipated hyped event that rarely lives up to preceding tension. The event must live up to the crowds expectations and tote a larger than expected production. If you don’t end up there, or if game time doesn’t deliver the goods, disappointment is naturally amidst. Luckily us Coloradan’s here on the Front Range we have a super rare opportunity to end our year with; the chance to spend three nights with an iconic Colorado musical entity.
