An Evening with The Del McCoury Band at the Harvester
450 Franklin Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
For more than 50 years, Del McCoury’s music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre. McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands.
Yet while reaching out to almost unimaginable audiences, Del’s music retains its signature characteristics. The Del McCoury Band has shown unprecedented stability, with but a single change in membership in twenty years; nine IBMA Entertainer of the Year trophies, their namesake earned membership in the cast of the legendary Grand Ole Opry in 2003, and the Band earned their first Best Bluegrass Album Grammy award two years later followed by their second Grammy win in 2014; they traveled with the groundbreaking post-O Brother “Down From The Mountain” tour, performed and recorded with Gill and with country star Dierks Bentley.
