Legendary Del McCoury Band at KU

Join the Legendary Del McCoury Band 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 20, Schaeffer Auditorium. Emerging from humble beginnings in York County more than 80 years ago, influenced by the banjo playing of Earl Scruggs, joining Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in early 1963 and now helming the Del McCoury Band, with sons Ronnie and Rob, Del is the living link. No surprise that contemporary, bluegrass-bred stars like Vince Gill and Alison Krauss, country-rock icon Steve Earle and jam band royalty Phish sing his praises. The Del McCoury Band continues to be a peerless torchbearer for the entire sweep and scope of bluegrass history. KU faculty and staff can access discounted tickets by logging in for tickets with their MyKU login.
