“Del & Dawg” celebrates the nearly 50-year bluegrass friendship of these two legendary musicians. Del McCoury met David Grisman at the first show Del ever played (on banjo) with Bill Monroe in 1963. Three years later, they played their first gig together. Since that time Grammy-nominated Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. A pioneer and innovator, David forged a unique personal artistic path, skillfully combining elements of the great American musical art forms - jazz and bluegrass mixed with many international flavors and sensibilities. McCoury is celebrated as the epitome of authenticity and purity for hardcore bluegrass fans. A member of Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys he later formed the Del McCoury Band with his sons, moving from small time honkey tonks to big stadium sell-outs with the likes of Phish and Steve Earl. Together they have shared the stage at venues and festivals across the country. Hardcore Bluegrass (2012) features their unique collection of bluegrass classics, made at two Dawg studio jam sessions in the 1990’s. At the Big Mine Ice Arena.
