Del McCoury and David Grisman met at the first show Del ever played with Bill Monroe in the spring of 1963 at New York University in Greenwich Village. Three years later, Del & Dawg played their first gig together in Troy, N.Y., at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Through the years they have shared the stage at venues and festivals across the country and in 2012 released Hardcore Bluegrass. Join us and celebrate the nearly 50-year bluegrass friendship that these two legendary musicians share and one of the rare occasions this year to enjoy the entire Del McCoury Band, and their special guest, Dawg.
