The Travelin' McCourysThe Emelin theatre in Mamaroneck, New York will feature the wonderful bluegrass music group The Travelin McCourys Friday, May 17 at 8 PM. This show is dedicated to the memory of Bob Mavian. Over the years, Bob and his wife Barbara graciously opened their home to a number of bands who played at the Emelin. Bob himself was well-known in the bluegrass community as an outstanding musician, especially on mandolin and banjo. He appeared with his band, Horse Country, at some of the very first bluegrass shows that Doug Tuchman and J.Jay Mautner produced at the Emelin, and thereafter was at the Emelin with several different bands including the Case Brothers and Big Apple'achia. Bob was exceptionally knowledgeable about vintage bluegrass instruments, and when he played, the four "T's," as bluegrass pickers like to say, were all there: touch, tone, timing and taste. He was a friend and mentor to countless bluegrass musicians, and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. The Theatre is located at 153 Library Lane in Mamaroneck. Tickets are $15 Students; $44 Advanced; $47 Day of Show.

The Travelin' McCourys consist of Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, Alan Bartram on bass and featured guests on guitar and vocals is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass -The Del McCoury Band.

Known for their individual prowess on their instruments and their rapidly expanding reputation as collaborators with the members of numerous musical icons from Vince Gill to the Allman Brothers and Phish, this touring unit blends the best of the Appalachian tradition with the improvisational magic of jazz. Unique live collaborations are the hallmark of their performances, and demonstrates why critics and musicians across the country hail them as the best bluegrass band in the world.
