Del McCoury

On November 9, The Del McCoury Band brought their upbeat brand of bluegrass to the Aladdin Theater in Portland, Oregon. The show, which was opened by The Jacob Jolliff Band, one of the next generations of jamgrass supergroups, was an amazing double bill of traditional bluegrass.

DelFest, the festival brainchild of Del McCoury and his extended McCoury family now in its 13th year, in partnership with High Sierra Music, announced an initial star-studded lineup today. Held at the Allegany County Fairgrounds in beautiful Cumberland, MD, DelFest originated from the desire to create a family-friendly music festival celebrating the rich legacy of McCoury music while creating a forum for world-class musical collaborations and to showcase fresh new talent.
