Del McCoury & Sam Bush
Bluegrass elder Del McCoury, 73, offers a mainline connection to the sound's origins in Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, whom he joined for a while in 1963. This short tour teams the guitarist with Sam Bush, the mandolin king of modern bluegrass (or "newgrass," if you must), who plays the diminutive instrument in a percussive, jazzy, and yet highly emotive style while naturally reflecting its Monroe-vian legacy.
