Cody KilbyAcclaimed band, The Travelin’ McCourys have started a new chapter in their book with the announcement that their guitar chair will be permanently filled by long-time friend and fan favorite, Cody Kilby.

Since then, a distinguished and varied group of guests have toured with the McCourys— the list ranges from bluegrass stalwarts like Jeff White and Ronnie Bowman to edgier pals like Keller Williams, The Infamous Stringdusters' Andy Falco, and String Cheese Incident’s Billy Nershi — with Kilby enjoying the role of most frequent.

The Travelin' McCourys Play Dedication Show for Bob Mavian

The Travelin' McCourysThe Emelin theatre in Mamaroneck, New York will feature the wonderful bluegrass music group The Travelin McCourys Friday, May 17 at 8 PM. This show is dedicated to the memory of Bob Mavian. Over the years, Bob and his wife Barbara graciously opened their home to a number of bands who played at the Emelin. Bob himself was well-known in the bluegrass community as an outstanding musician, especially on mandolin and banjo. He appeared with his band, Horse Country, at some of the very first bluegrass shows that Doug Tuchman and J.Jay Mautner produced at the Emelin, and thereafter was at the Emelin with several different bands including the Case Brothers and Big Apple'achia. Bob was exceptionally knowledgeable about vintage bluegrass instruments, and when he played, the four "T's," as bluegrass pickers like to say, were all there: touch, tone, timing and taste. He was a friend and mentor to countless bluegrass musicians, and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. The Theatre is located at 153 Library Lane in Mamaroneck. Tickets are $15 Students; $44 Advanced; $47 Day of Show.

Legendary Bluegrass Artists Honor “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe Nov 29

Bill MonroeLegendary bluegrass artists Peter Rowan, Tony Rice and The Travelin' McCourys pay homage to the undisputed “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe. Few artists can claim to have created a genre all their own, but Kentucky-born musician Bill Monroe (Sep. 13, 1911 – Sep. 9, 1996) did exactly that when he added North Carolina banjo prodigy Earl Scruggs to his traditional stringband in 1945. Known as the Blue Grass Boys, Monroe and Scruggs, alongside singer/guitarist Lester Flatt, fiddler Chubby Wise and bassist Howard Watts, forged new ground, not only creating an entirely unique genre of American music, but forever changing the course of American rock-and-roll with one of their most famous songs, “Blue Moon of Kentucky” - an early hit for an up-and-coming young musician named Elvis Presley.
