Del McCoury’s Cold Turkey Thanksgiving Special
Every year since 2005, Relix’s podcast Cold Turkey has partnered with Del McCoury to present a special Thanksgiving Weekend music package. Over the years we’ve offered live cuts, studio favorites and even some unreleased material (we were proud to debut the bluegrass icon’s collaboration with Preservation Hall Jazz Band a few years back). Even though Cold Turkey has mostly morphed into our Live at Relix video series, we continue to work with the McCourys every Thanksgiving.
Today’s Cold Turkey Thanksgiving special surveys where Del and the boys are this year. The episode begins with two tracks from The Travelin’ McCoury’s collaborative album with Keller Williams, Pick. Then, we move into the live realm for three choice Del McCoury Band songs recorded at DelFest in 2011 and, finally, we look at Del McCoury’s tribute to bluegrass founding father Bill Monroe, Old Memories.
Up next, Del McCoury and Sam Bush will perform at Chicago, IL’s Old Town School of Folk Music on December 1.
