Del McCoury Band @ GrassRoots Live!
May 8 ~ 5:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Undeniably one of the most talented, revered and vital groups in bluegrass history, Shakori Hills is thrilled to welcome back the Del McCoury Band. Born in Bakersville, NC, McCoury is a national treasure who has been the epitome of the “high lonesome sound” for over four decades, including a stint as lead singer for Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys. With a sound encompassing shades of blues and gospel, his crowds run the gamut from tie-dyed neo-hippie jammers to button-down yuppies to suspendered good ol’ boys. The band’s instrumental and vocal firepower, deep-rooted dedication to bluegrass heritage, consummate showmanship, and high spirits continue to spread their influence. With sons Ronnie and Rob by his side, their impeccable bluegrass virtuosity remains as stunning as ever. McCoury and his band have won more International Bluegrass Music Association awards than any other artist in history.
