Even among the pantheon of music’s finest artists, Del McCoury stands alone. From the nascent sound of bluegrass that charmed hardscrabble hillbilly honkytonks, rural schoolhouse stages, and the crowning glory of the Grand Ole Opry to the present-day culture-buzz of viral videos and digital streams, Del is the living link. On primetime and late-night television talk shows, there is Del. From headlining sold-out concerts to music festivals of all genres, including one carrying is namesake, there is Del. Where audiences number in the tens of thousands, and admirers as diverse as country-rock icon Steve Earle and amband royalty Phish count as two among hundreds, there is Del.

Emerging from humble beginnings in York County, PA nearly eighty years ago, Del was not the likeliest of candidates for legendary status. As a teen, he was captivated by the banjo playing of one of its masters, Earl Scruggs, and decided he’d be a banjo picker, too. The Baltimore/Washington, D.C. bar scene of the early 1960s was lively and rough. Del caught a break. More than a break, really. It was an opportunity of a lifetime; joining Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys in early 1963. Considered the Father of Bluegrass, Monroe transformed McCoury, moving him from the banjo to guitar, anointing him lead singer, and providing him with a priceless trove of bluegrass tutelage direct from the source.

    Del has the best pompadour in show business. To witness it in person is no less a thrill than seeing Van Gogh’s Starry Night. And then there’s that band of his. The fiddle player and the banjo player are as good as it gets in the bluegrass world. Until Ricky Skaggs takes up the fiddle and banjo again in earnest, these guys in Del’s band are IT. They pretty much smoke all the others. Including Sam Bush and Alastair Fraser.

    In other words there’s no better bluegrass outfit than the Del McCoury Band. To see Del in all his hair sprayed glory (with these boys backing him up) is the equivalent of watching Picasso paint one of his mistresses.

  36. Matt October 30, 2019 at 10:42 am #

    I would love to see them in person.

  37. Myki October 30, 2019 at 11:56 am #

    Would like to be introduced to this great band. They play the music I like.

  38. Carol November 3, 2019 at 3:30 pm #

    I love bluegrass and fiddles and picking!! Hell yea!

  39. Nick November 3, 2019 at 5:53 pm #

    It’s my birthday!!! Love me some Del!

    • Cory November 3, 2019 at 7:32 pm #

      Whoops hooooo!!!!
