Greensky Bluegrass Collaborate with Del McCoury and More at DelFest

Brady Cooling

The 11th DelFest continued from Cumberland, MD, on Friday, offering music from Mandolin Orange, The Brothers Comatose, Cris Jacobs and more, plus late-night gigs from The Dustbowl Revival and The California Honeydrops. One of the day’s highlights, though was a set from Greensky Blugrass, who fit a couple guests into their performance, including Del McCoury himself.

The first half of Greensky’s set featured some of their live staples like “Burn Them,” “The Four” and “Windshield,” plus a cover of The Beatles’ “A Day in the Life,” before dobroist Anders Beck introduced “Del McCoury,” which was actually someone dressed up in an oversized-head McCoury costume. A few second later, the group welcomed out the real McCoury for a cover of “Country Boy Rock & Roll,” a debut for Greensky.

The band was later joined on stage by Jason Carter on fiddle for “All Four,” while guitarist Jon Stickley came out a couple songs later for “Broke Mountain Breakdown” and a cover of the Allman Brothers Band’s “One Way Out.”

See the full setlist below, along with fan-shot video of “A Day in the Life” (via DCRANGERFAN) and the McCoury collaborations (via Rick Kline h/t Live For Live Music). is also offering a full stream/download of the show.

DelFest continues today with music from The Travelin’ McCourys, The Bluegrass Congress, Sam Bush Band, Billy Strings and more.
