Del McCoury Band, Paco Shipp 

When: Fri., June 4, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $24-34

Only a few gray hairs over 70 years old, Del McCoury ranks alongside Ralph Stanley and Earl Scruggs as a living legend of bluegrass. McCoury got his first break flatpicking and singing high lonesome leads with Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys, though he abandoned that gig just a year later to support his family with logging and construction jobs in Pennsylvania. For more than four decades, Del's led his own band with his two sons—mandolin player Ronnie and banjo plucker Robbie—and bassist brother Jerry. Seems appropriate, then, that the McCourys titled their latest—the secular follow-up to 2005's Grammy-winning disc The Company We KeepFamily Circle. With Paco Shipp. —Spencer Griffith
