Del McCoury Band and Sierra Hull
January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm Free
The Next WDVX World Class Bluegrass Show is Saturday, January 30, from the Clayton Center for the Arts in Maryville, featuring the Del McCoury Band and Sierra Hull with special guest The Voice runner up Emily Ann Roberts. Tickets are on sale now by phone 865-981-8590 and on line at www.claytonartscenter.com. For more than 50 years, Del McCoury’s music has defined authenticity for hardcore bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre. McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands. Del might be 76, but he’s singing better than ever and showing no signs of slowing down. Sierra Hull has been recognized from age 11 as a virtuoso mandolin-player, astonishing audiences and fellow-musicians alike. Now a seasoned touring musician nearing her mid-20s, Hull has delivered her most inspired, accomplished, and mature recorded work to date; no small feat. Weighted Mind (due out January 29, 2016) is a landmark achievement, not just in Sierra Hull’s career, but in the world of folk-pop, bluegrass, and acoustic music overall.
