Fleet flatpicker Del McCoury is a bluegrass icon, though he's hardly allowed himself to be confined by the genre's conventions. After starting out alongside Bill Monroe, McCoury and his band have shared stages and studios with Steve Earle, Phish and The String Cheese Incident, gathering more than 30 IBMA awards and a Grammy along the way. McCoury recorded with New Orleans institution The Preservation Hall Jazz Band in 2008, and the chemistry between the two legendary acts led to a co-headlining tour. Though they perform together on brass band and bluegrass numbers, the biggest rewards come when the collaborators jam on gospel tunes common to both traditions. Both bands get full sets, followed by a joint finale. —Spencer Griffith
