As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury (mandolin) and Rob McCoury (banjo) continue their father’s work—a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. Joined by Jason Carter (fiddle) and Alan Bartram (bass) the Travelin' McCourys are considered to be the gold standard of both traditional and progressive bluegrass. The band has a confidence that only comes with having paid their dues with twenty years on the bluegrass road.
Grassland Jam is made possible with the support of the members of Pioneer Public Television and with contributions from the voters of Minnesota through a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
