About the artist:

From a source deep, abundant, and pure, the river flows. It’s there on the map, marking place and time. Yet, the river changes as it remains a constant, carving away at the edges, making new pathways, gaining strength as it progresses forward. The Travelin’ McCourys are that river.
The McCoury brothers- Ronnie (mandolin) and Rob (banjo) – were born into the bluegrass tradition. Talk about a source abundant and pure: their father, Del, is among the most influential and successful
musicians in the history of the genre. Years on the road with Dad in the Del McCoury Band honed their
knife-edge chops, and encouraged the duo to imagine how traditional bluegrass could cut innovative
pathways into 21st century music.
“If you put your mind, your skills, and your ability to it, I think you can make just about anything work on
bluegrass instruments,” says Ronnie. “That’s a really fun part of this- figuring the new stuff out and
surprising the audience.”
With fiddler Jason Carter, bassist Alan Bartram, and latest recruit Cody Kilby on guitar, they assembled a group that could take what they had in their DNA, take what traditions they learned and heard, and
push the music forward. In fact, the band became the only group to have each of its members
recognized with an International Bluegrass Music Association Award for their instrument at least once.
There were peers, too, that could see bluegrass as both historic and progressive. Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame inductees The Allman Brothers Band, improv-rock kings Phish, and jamband contemporary Keller Williams were just a few that formed a mutual admiration society with the ensemble.
