Buskirk-Chumley Theater Ticket Giveaway
The Buskirk-Chumley Theater is one of Bloomington's most popular -- and most historic -- venues for live entertainment, and their season of BCT Presents shows is selling fast. We were lucky enough to score some tickets to upcoming concerts, and we want to give them away!
The current show is: the most awarded bluegrass band of all time, Del McCoury Band on November 6.
Del McCoury was first bitten by the bluegrass bug when he heard Earl Scruggs' banjo in the early 1950s. McCoury became a banjo picker himself, working in the rough but lively Baltimore and D.C. bar scenes into the early 1960s. He got his first taste of the limelight when he joined Bill Monroe's Blue Grass Boys in 1963. The Father of Bluegrass moved McCoury from the banjo to guitar, made him his lead singer, and gave him a lifetime's worth of bluegrass tutelage direct from the source.
In the years since, McCoury and his band have received numerous awards and nominations; performed with admirers including Alison Krauss, Phish, and Steve Earle; and have only had one change in membership in twenty years. McCoury's namesake festival, DelFest, has become one of the premier string band events in the country showcasing acts ranging from bluegrass legend Bobby Osborne to Phish's frontman Trey Anastasio.
