Del to play with Masters of Bluegrass

Masters of Bluegrass
Featuring J.D. Crowe, Bobby Hicks, Del McCoury, Jerry McCoury and Bobby Osborne
2 Unforgettable Nights Of Bluegrass

Lucky audiences in Bristol, Tennesssee and Bowling Green, Kentucky are slated to be the first to enjoy an unparalleled musical experience when two new bands, for whom the term “supergroup” seems grossly inadequate, make their first road appearances since each debuted at the International Bluegrass Music Association’s World of Bluegrass in October. Hailed as an unrivaled assembly of first- and second-generation legends, the Masters of Bluegrass—J. D. Crowe, Bobby Hicks, Del McCoury, Jerry McCoury and Bobby Osborne—anchor a night that begins with the Rambling Rooks, featuring three of the most admired and influential musicians of the past 20 years by reuniting one-time Lonesome River Band members Ronnie Bowman, Don Rigsby and Kenny Smith. Either group would be exciting enough on their own, but put them together and the result is guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind musical experience.

Between them, the Masters of Bluegrass can count four Bluegrass Hall of Famers, two Grand Ole Opry members and a lineage that reaches back to bluegrass music’s earliest days. Separately (and occasionally together), they’ve appeared on countless late night TV shows, at every major bluegrass venue and on prestigious music festival and performing arts center stages across the country and around the world, where they’ve built enduring careers by delighting new fans and thrilling long-timers alike with wit, warmth, virtuosity and enduring creativity. The Masters are truly both keepers of the flame and also bearers of the torches with which bluegrass is blazing new trails in the 21st century.

With a score of IBMA awards between them, the Rambling Rooks have been in the forefront of bluegrass for some twenty years themselves, including a key five year stint with the Lonesome River Band. Since their departures from the band early in the new century, each has earned acclaim for individual accomplishments—Bowman as a soulful singer and successful songwriter with a brace of #1 country hits to his credit; Rigsby as a college-level bluegrass educator and soaring vocalist; Smith as the co-leader of the Kenny & Amanda Smith Band, known as one of the most elegant exponents of modern bluegrass. With renowned banjo man Rob McCoury on board for the tour, the Rambling Rooks live up to their name with an unsurpassed ability to wander through the entire bluegrass catalog, dishing up first generation classics along with their own contemporary contributions to the genre.

Nashville, TN – September 25, 2012 –  Two of bluegrass music’s most entertaining and well loved performers, Sam Bush and Del McCoury will be teaming up for a highly anticipated string of tour dates beginning in November.  To quote Sam, “I first saw Del at the Roanoke Bluegrass Festival in 1966 and have been waiting for this opportunity to tour together ever since.  We invite you to come join the fun as two old friends make music and swap stories onstage.”

Known as the “King of Telluride” Grammy award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush maintains a busy travel schedule with The Sam Bush Band.  He is currently nominated for both IBMA Mandolin Player of the Year, his band for Instrumental Group of the Year and is also a CMA Nominee for Musician of the Year. Sam was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Instrumentalist  from the Americana Music Association in 2009. His most recent release is “Circles Around Me” on Sugar Hill Records.

Del McCoury has been playing Bluegrass Music professionally for more than 50 years.  His storied career has included a Grammy, as well as numerous Grammy nominations, nine IBMA Entertainer of the Year Awards, membership in the Grand Ole Opry, and a National Heritage Fellowship.  He has collaborated with everyone from Dierks Bentley to Phish, and has his own festival, DelFest, coming up on it’s sixth year. His most recent release is a tribute to Bill Monroe called “Old Memories: The Songs of Bill Monroe” on McCoury Music.  Del is also co-hosting this year’s IBMA Awards show at the Ryman Auditorium on Sept. 27th.

Though both Sam & Del grew up playing traditional bluegrass, their openness to expanding the genre has set them apart in recent years bringing numerous young fans to the music.
