Del McCoury For fifty years, Del's music has defined authenticity for bluegrass fans. He is a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals and the concert circuit.
The Gibson Brothers With nearly a dozen trophies from the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, the Gibson Brothers have built their legacy upon a sound that salutes the past while still pushing forward.
Sierra Hull is an accomplished mandolin player and vocalist — and GRAMMY Nominee. She is IBMA 2018 winner of Mandolin Player of the Year.
Justin Moses is winner of the 2018 IBMA “Dobro Performer of the Year.”
Dre Anders blends West coast and soulful Folk sounds with her Swedish musical heritage to create something entirely new and wonderful.
Cody Kilby spent 14 years slinging hot licks on guitar for Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder and brings his unique tone to the Travelin’ McCourys.
