Travelin’ McCourys concerts are can’t-miss events, drawing the love and respect of a growing fanbase craving their eclectic repertoire. Rolling Stone called their sound “a sublime combination of rock and bluegrass, contemporary and classic, old and young.” The McCoury brothers- Ronnie (mandolin) and Rob (banjo) – were born into the bluegrass tradition. 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 Ronnie and Rob’s knife-edge chops, and encouraged the duo to imagine how traditional bluegrass could cut innovative pathways into 21st century music.
