The Road to Delfest Featuring the Travelin' McCourys/Billy Strings

When: Wed., Feb. 10, 8:30 p.m. 2016

At the Jan. 2 Phish show in New York City, the guy sitting next to me said that Delfest is “the best festival experience in the country.” He’s not the only guy to make that claim. The fest, which happens in late May in Cumberland, Md., features some of the finest bluegrass musicians in the world. Right now, the Travelin’ McCourys -- fronted by Ronnie and Rob McCoury, sons of Del himself -- are touring the U.S. and spreading the good word about Delfest. Fast pickin’ abounds, and dancing is sure to follow. The Travelin’ McCourys are a force unto their own, and they provide excellent entertainment wherever they wander. We’d also like to mention the band’s album with Keller Williams -- 2012’s Pick -- which is a delightful little ‘grass album if we’ve ever heard one. (Eric Sandy)
