At 78 years old, Del McCoury is not slowing down.  Today he digitally releases his new single, “You Could Be Me”.  Del continues to release singles as they are finished as a way to get them to fans now instead of having to wait for a full album.  This, and other, tracks will all eventually make their way to the next album but this gives listeners a peak into what the band is doing.

The Travelin’ McCourys’ show in Nederland on Friday wasn’t a voracious late night affair fueled with moonshine fumes and guest sit-ins. It wasn’t an improvised, slam-grass stomper. It was five musicians atop their craft advancing in banter and harmonious bluegrass memories while chiding one another between songs like a vaudeville act.

Del & Woody hits number 1 for 2nd week!

Submitted by Groove On Music on Wed, 05/04/2016 - 7:31 pm

For the 2nd week The Del McCoury Band’s Del & Woody, a collection of lyrics left behind by Woody Guthrie and put to music by McCoury, reached #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart.  As best we can tell (with help from the Woody Guthrie Center), a few songs of Woody’s have charted on radio before, but no project that included only his songs has ever risen to the top of the Billboard album chart.  McCoury—who at 77 is no stranger to the top of the c

Del McCoury | Del and Woody | Review

Submitted by Dylan Muhlberg on Fri, 03/18/2016 - 12:53 pm

American folk and protest music legend Woody Guthrie has influenced generations of singer-songwriters. His optimistic vision of the United States was as a land of opportunity, equality, and freedom for all. Though hundreds of his treasured songs have been preserved, they still need to be continued through the vitality of living musicians. To the joy of the folk, country, bluegrass and Americana community, iconic vocalist and guitarist Del McCoury took on the bold task of upholding Guthrie’s legacy.

Del McCoury announces release of Woody Guthrie project

Del McCoury is at it again.  At 77 years young he is still very excited about music and creating projects that will be enjoyed by generations to come.  This one might just be the most talked about as it’s rare for two artists to team up on music separated by 70+ years…some of these lyrics were written the year Del was born, but with Woody’s timeless lyrics, and Del’s timeless sound, nothing matters but the songs.

Northwest String Summit 2015 | Review

Submitted by Chris Naugle on Sat, 08/22/2015 - 1:09 pm

There was a decidedly day-glo hue to the bluegrass played at this year’s Northwest String Summit (July 16-19). Many of the musical merry-makers, and deadicated patrons alike, appeared to still be basking in the warm fluorescent after-light of the “Fare Thee Well” experience.  The haunting presence of the now officially departed Dead continues to populate and positively inform a new generation of musical/spiritual adventurers.
