Center Presents
2013-14 Winter Season
Del McCoury Band

Center Theater

For fifty years, the music of Del McCoury has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre.

Yet even as he reaches out to almost unimaginable audiences, Del’s music retains its signature characteristics. “What I most admire about someone like Del,” says Vince Gill, “is that he’s one of the last patriarchs that really played the music in its authentic way. And even though he’s willing to bend a little bit, to be out there playing at jam band festivals and things like that, it doesn’t sound like what the new people do with bluegrass. He’s done a great job of bringing new songs into the fold, but when he sings them they sound like 1959 or 1962 again. It still has the element of his voice, and the authenticity of it never goes away, never changes. And even after doing it for fifty years, he’s at the top of everybody’s list of what’s going on today with bluegrass.”
