The Del McCoury Band

Vince Gill says it simply, and maybe best: “I’d rather hear Del McCoury sing Are You Teasing Me than just about anything.” For 50 years, McCoury’s music has defined authenticity for hardcore bluegrass fans, as well as a growing number of fans only vaguely familiar with the genre. As leader of the band, he plays guitar and sings lead vocals along with his two sons, Ronnie McCoury and Rob McCoury. The Del McCoury Band performs at the Newberry Opera House February 16 at 8 p.m. Tickets $65 – $75.
