The pole star for the constellation of bluegrass bands — progressive, transgressive and otherwise — rotating across the Del Yeah! festival is, of course, Delano Floyd McCoury, arguably the genre's finest tenor singer this side of Jimmy Martin, RIP. McCoury and his band, anchored by sons Ronnie and Robbie, play bluegrass fast, hard, high and lonesome, with insane fiddling from Jason Carter and mind-bending mandolin from Ronnie. But it's Del, a patriarch who delivers gospel hymns and secular hits by the likes of Richard Thompson and Bob Dylan, who makes the band the keeper of the blue flame it is.
1200 S. 7th St.
St. Louis, MO 63104
Region: St. Louis - Clayton
Don't Miss: Del Yeah! features no fewer than eight bands, and, along with McCoury and evening headliners the Infamous Stringdusters, some local bluegrassers, notably the Hatrick and Cumberland Gap, will pick up a storm.
