Del McCoury Band to perform at GC Saturday

GOSHEN — The Del McCoury Band will return to Goshen College for a Performing Arts Series concert Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Center’s Sauder Concert Hall.

Since he was last at GC in 2004, Del McCoury has received a National Heritage Fellowship lifetime achievement award and was elected into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame, honoring his 50-plus years making music.  

“Here’s a guy (McCoury) who has been playing for 50 years, and he’s still experimenting — still looking to do things outside the box, to bring other kinds of music into bluegrass form,” Americana music icon Richard Thompson said on the Del McCoury Band website. “I think that’s the best bluegrass band, period. That’s it.”

A 15 percent special discount off the regular price is being offered for tickets bought in-person or on the phone.

Seating for those with disabilities is available and the minimum age of attendees is 5 years old. Tickets are nonrefundable.
