Del McCoury Band 

When: Thu., April 4, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $20-35

By now, you've likely heard that late September belongs to bluegrass in Raleigh, at least for the next three years. That's when the International Bluegrass Music Association brings its annual convention to the city. If you're unfamiliar with the strain, there's perhaps no better chance for indoctrination than an appearance by the Del McCoury Band. McCoury played with Bill Monroe's foundational Blue Grass Boys five decades ago, but his high-energy, high-harmonies band with his own boys (that's Ronnie on mandolin, Rob on banjo) have become something of a standard for modern bluegrass. Keen preservationists with the good sense to know this stuff doesn't survive in a vacuum, the McCoury family is as much a part of bluegrass' lifeblood and future in this century as anything else. —Grayson Currin
