Delfest has announced ‘Delfest At Home,’ a virtual festival “celebrating musical highlights from Delfests past.” The event is scheduled for this coming weekend, May 21-24. The streaming event will be completely free.
Performances highlighted during Delfest At Home include sets by Trey Anastasio Band, Bela Fleck & Chris Thile, Greensky Bluegrass, Railroad Earth, The Infamous Stringdusters and many more. Of course, both the Del McCoury Band and The Travelin’ McCourys will be featured.
“We’ve heard from many folks how much it’s going to hurt not being at DelFest this Memorial Day weekend, so we hope this helps a little. We’re grateful to have a dedicated crew that has captured some great moments of DelFest through the years, and are looking forward to reliving some of these great moments with you ourselves,” said Ronnie McCoury of the Del McCoury Band and The Travelin’ McCourys via press release.
“We are so excited about this,” added his brother Rob McCoury (also via press release). “It’s just a small way we can all feel connected this weekend. Keep an eye on your notifications—we are going to pop onto Facebook Live from time to time between sets to say ‘hello.’”
