Legends of bluegrass
With International Bluegrass Music Association awards numbering in the dozens, The Del McCoury Band stands at a pinnacle of accomplishment matched by few others in the music's history. Rooted in tradition, they put the blues in bluegrass like no one else since Del McCoury's mentor Bill Monroe, and they incorporate songs from other traditions with an ease that is the mark of total mastery. On their latest release, "The Promised Land," Del and the boys apply their incredible harmonies and ensemble work to a set of bluegrass gospel tunes. Nobody does bluegrass better! On their latest release, "Del and Woody," the band offers lyrics by Woody Guthrie set to music by Del McCoury—a true meeting of great minds.
