Del McCoury Band to headline Caramoor American Roots Festival

On Saturday, June 29th at The Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts – Venetian Theater, The Del McCoury Band will headline Caramoor’s American Roots Music Festival – a daylong celebration of folk, string band, country, blues, gospel, and bluegrass music.  The concert will mark the world premiere and the only New York performance of The Del McCoury Bands new project, “Del & Woody” featuring unheard and unsung words of Guthrie set to music by Del himself.  To help bring new life to the work of American folk poet Woody Guthrie, his daughter, Nora Guthrie, gave Del McCoury exclusive access to the archives of her father’s unpublished work. Now, with the support of Woody Guthrie’s family, The Del McCoury Band will perform an evening of never-before-heard lyrics writeen by the “Dust Bowl Troubadour” set to new music by Del McCoury and including a multi-media presentation featuring Guthrie’s original words, drawings, and other materials from the archives that inspired this performance. In addition, McCoury, will perform his trademark Bluegrass standards and favorites. Check out this glimpse into the studio of The Del McCoury Band recording Woody Guthrie’s “California Gold”.

Also, Del is very excited to announce the lineup for the 4th annual Del Yeah.  Del Yeah will be taking place on August 24 & 25 in St. Louis at The Old Rock House.  The 2 day event will feature The Del McCoury Band, Henhouse Prowlers, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Honey Island Swamp Band, Head For The Hills, Whitewater Ramble, Aaron Kamm & The One Drops, Old Salt Union, The Hatrick, Clusterpluck, Acoustics Anonymous, and Elemental Shakedown. The idea of Del Yeah is to create a festival atmosphere in an outdoor setting or otherwise non-traditional venue complete with impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations. More information to come
