Billy Strings and Bluegrass legend Del McCoury’s cover of “Midnight on the Stormy Deep” shows both the longevity of music and its power as a connecting force free from time.

The bluegrass standard has been covered over the past two centuries, and this duo does the musicians before them justice.

Their live performance swells with fine mandolin and guitar runs, as the 82-year-old and 28-year-old harmonize their respective high tenor and soulful euphonious voices.
