As World of Bluegrass Week hits full swing in Nashville, bluegrass pickers extraordinaire Sam Bush and Del McCoury have announced they will be playing a series of dates together beginning in November.
“I first saw Del at the Roanoke Bluegrass Festival in 1966 and have been waiting for this opportunity to tour together ever since,” says Bush. “We invite you to come join the fun as two old friends make music and swap stories onstage.”
At the 2012 IBMA Awards taking place tonight (9/27) at the Ryman Auditorium, McCoury will be co-host the ceremony where he has earned nine Entertainer of the Year Awards. Bush is currently nominated for IBMA Awards for Mandolin Player of the Year, and Instrumental Group of the Year (with his band), as well as a CMA Award nominee for Musician of the Year.
