      The Travelin' McCourys

      with T Sisters
      The Travelin McCourys do not stand still. They are on the roadand onlineentertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres. Its always different, always exciting, and always great music. No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo continue their fathers worka lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into peoples lives. And with fiddler Jason Carter and bassist Alan Bartram, the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful. But the band is now combining their sound with others to make something fresh and rejuvenating.They recently played with the Allman Brothers at Wanee Fest and then brought the house down at Warren Haynes Annual Christmas Jam, an invitation only Southern Rock homecoming. Their jam with the Lee Boys was hailed by many as the highlight of the evening, and once word of the live video hit the streets, sent new fans online to watch a supercharged combination of sacred steel, R&B, and bluegrass. Theyve also performed with Warren Haynes, Phish, and have a tour scheduled with the aforementioned Lee Boys. Ronnie McCoury described it as peanut butter and jelly. It was just right.They can push forward so far because their roots are so deep. The band has a confidence that only comes with having paid their dues with twenty years on the bluegrass road. Other groups and new fans hear this immediatelythe tight rhythm, the soulful material, and the confidence in taking bluegrass from the safety of the shore into uncharted waters.Ronnie says, We like to go in and play traditional bluegrass music the way we do it with Dad, but we also like to be able to step into situations where we can really stretch out. If we need to plug in, well plug in. Were open to anything.Its that attitude, backed up by talent, that marks great musicians, traditional or progressive. The Travelin McCourys are twenty-first century musical pilgrims and adventurers. Theyre onto something new, just like Bill Monroe was in the 1940s, but now we can see and hear that adventure live or online. Go see them, orif you hold still long enoughtheyll come to you.Chris Stuart, Del Mar, California, 2009
