The Travelin' McCourys

From a source deep, abundant, and pure the river flows. It’s there on the map, marking place and time. Yet, the river changes as it remains a constant, carving away at the edges, making new pathways, gaining strength as it progresses forward. The Travelin’ McCourys are that river.

The McCoury brothers- Ronnie (mandolin) and Rob (banjo) - were born into the bluegrass tradition. Talk about a source abundant and pure: their father, Del, is among the most influential and successful musicians in the history of the genre. Years on the road with Dad in the Del McCoury Band honed their knife-edge chops, and encouraged the duo to imagine how traditional bluegrass could cut innovative pathways into 21st century music.

Larry Keel Experience

If flat-picking guitar on the highest level required a resumé, Larry Keel could skip the interview process altogether and get straight to work. Keel has collaborated and shared the stage with an absolute all-star cast over the course of his career. From bluegrass legends Tony Rice, Vassar Clements, Bill Monroe, and John Hartford to modern rock and jam mainstays Keller Williams, Leftover Salmon, Little Feat, and String Cheese Incident, to today’s most respected up-and-comers like Billy Strings, Tyler Childers and Greensky Bluegrass, all of Keel’s influences and peers sing his praises—not just for his musicianship, but his friendship as well.
Keel has been revered by critics at JamBase, Bluegrass Today, AXS, and Rolling Stone, who dubbed him “...One of the finest flatpickers around,” and described his unparalleled live performance as, “taking songs up a notch with psychedelic hillbilly shredding."

Over the past 30 years, Keel has grown a cult-like following with his energetic performances and skilled musicianship; he has released 16 albums and is featured on 10 others, including his side project with Keller Williams, Keller and the Keels. Keller and the Keels' new album Speed debuted in November of 2019; Relix recently premiered their newest single "Medulla Oblongata".
