Travelin' McCourys Release Althea on Video

Article Contributed by Groove On Music | Published on Monday, February 20, 2017

The Travelin' McCourys started a very special string of shows called 'The Grateful Ball' in 2016. The show consists of a set of music from The Jeff Austin Band, a set of music from The Travelin' McCourys and then a set with both bands playing all Grateful Dead songs. While the band initially only planned to do one run, the success of the shows and demand from fans across the country made them rethink and plan a few more shows, this time on the West Coast.

Today the band releases a professionally shot video of 'Althea' from one of their first stops on the last tour at The Hamilton in Washington, DC. You can see the video here:
