Wednesday, November 12th
Doors 7pm, Show 8pm
$26 Advance, $28 Day of Show
All Ages

Ronnie McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle, and Alan Bartram on bass with featured guests on guitar and vocals, is the latest incarnation of the most awarded band in the history of bluegrass – The Del McCoury Band.  No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive acoustic music.  As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie and Rob continue their father’s work – a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives.  Based in tradition the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful but they also bring something fresh and rejuvenating to the stage. 
Mandolinist Jeff Austin is unstoppable. He is celebrated for his fleet fingers and penchant for improvisation on stage, but those qualities also speak volumes about how he chooses to live. Austin has cultivated his natural musical abilities and allowed himself to be driven by his boldest instincts.  In this way, he has been able to build positive, exciting momentum around his life’s greatest passion.
