The Travelin' McCourys
2020 02-08 | Variety Playhouse | Atlanta, GA
When it comes to American bluegrass music, there's no bigger name than McCoury. Family patriarch, Del, was basically right there when the whole damn genre was created. But when Del isn't on the road with his world-famous Del McCoury Band, his boys, Ronnie and Rob (along with the other non-McCoury McCourys - Jason Carter, Alan Bartram, and Cody Kilby), continue to tour as The Travelin' McCourys. The same expert musicianship, but a bit more casual. It's where tradition meets progression. On this night, and on this tour, The Travelin' McCourys opened for Yonder Mountain String Band at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta. By any standard, that's a pretty good bill of music. Both bands, longtime friends, shared space before the show, allowing for a backstage scene highlighted by familiarity, relaxed camaraderie, and plenty of room for collaboration. Click any image to begin slideshow.
