Del McCoury Band

For 50 years, Del McCoury has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans only vaguely familiar with the genre. McCoury is a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals. This bluegrass legend will perform at the Sumter Opera House March 24. Tickets $40-$48.
