Del McCoury and Sam BushSam and Del McCoury are teaming up for a highly anticipated string of tour dates beginning in November! The performances, "An Acoustic Evening with Del McCoury and Sam Bush," will bring two of the finest bluegrass music artists together for a series of rare appearances. To quote Sam, “I first saw Del at the Roanoke Bluegrass Festival in 1966 and have been waiting for this opportunity to tour together ever since. We invite you to come join the fun as two old friends make music and swap stories onstage.”

Del McCoury has one of the most-storied careers in Bluegrass history. His award collection includes a Grammy, as well as numerous Grammy nominations, nine IBMA Entertainer of the Year Awards, membership in the Grand Ole Opry, and a National Heritage Fellowship. He has collaborated with everyone from Dierks Bentley to Phish, and has his own festival, DelFest, coming up on it's sixth year. His most recent release is a tribute to Bill Monroe entitled Old Memories: The Songs of Bill Monroe on McCoury Music.
