Del McCoury Band/Clear Fork Bluegrass Quartet

When: Fri., May 29, 8 p.m. 2015

The other DMB, Del McCoury and Co. have held down a special corner of the bluegrass community for decades. He’s a badass rooted in all the right traditions of the music, and his band is coming up on 50 years of writing, recording and performing in one way or another. The most recent album, The Streets of Baltimore, is as good as anything they’ve cut in all that time. Rob McCoury, one of Del’s two sons in the band, plays a mean, mean banjo throughout the album and leads the band on winding rivers of sound in these full-bodied compositions. Jason Carter’s fiddle, in particular, also shines throughout the most recent stuff. Del is one of those constants in the music world, and he’s still on top of his game. The Music Box is a great-sounding room, and you can bet that the band will deliver tonight. (Eric Sandy)
