The Travelin’ McCourys at District Live

If bluegrass music is your jam, then you’re likely familiar with revered Grammy winner, Del McCoury. A pioneer in roots music, McCoury got his start singing and playing rhythm guitar with Bill Monroe’s “Blue Grass Boys” in 1963. After years of touring and recording, he brought his teenage sons, Ronnie and Rob, into his band, thus planting the seeds of what would grow into “The Travelin’ McCourys.”

Get ready for an evening of high energy stompin,’ dancin’ and clappin’ when “The Travelin’ McCourys” roll into Savannah with their internationally acclaimed roots, bluegrass and Americana sound Tuesday, April 25, downtown at District Live.

In the mid-2000s, Del McCoury began thinking about how the music he loved would carry forward when he could no longer perform. That’s when he urged his sons and band mates to start thinking about the future. In Nashville in 2009, at the behest of McCoury himself, “The Travelin’ McCourys” took to the road. Long-time bassist in both bands, Alan Bartram, considers how it began.
