Del McCoury announces 3 day 3 city Del Yeah weekend with Emmitt-Nershi, Stringdusters, Cornmeal & more

 

Del Yeah is back and bigger than before….and this time it’s hitting the Midwest!  After very successful 2010 & 2011 labor day weekends, Del McCoury music is excited to announce the 3rd annual ‘Del Yeah’ weekend – a multi-day, multi-venue ‘happening’ taking place over Labor Day weekend.. The idea of Del Yeah is to create a festival atmosphere in an outdoor setting or otherwise non-traditional venue complete with impromptu jams and unscheduled collaborations.

Initial plans include shows on August 31st, and September 1st and 2nd featuring the award-winning Del McCoury Band and their friends Emmitt-Nershi Band, Mountain Sprout, Cornmeal  and many others joining along the way. Shows will be programmed for a full afternoon and evening’s worth of music and entertainment, culminating in closing jam sessions that will have audiences on the edge of their seats or dancing to the music all night long.

 

Friday, August 31: Crossroads KC at Grinders, Kansas City, MO

Springfest 2012: Live, Backstage & Unplugged, part I with Elephant Revival, Emmitt-Nershi & The Mosier Brothers (VIDEO)

There is something about the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park that causes music to reign supreme at the festivals held upon her majestic grounds. While many events feel that they must get wrapped up in one activity after the next art installation that can be viewed after hopping off a carousel or finishing up a Major League Baseball experience, the events held at Suwannee pride themselves on three things: music, vibe and beautiful grounds. This is not to say that these other things do not have their place at festivals. They just do not have a place a Suwannee. 

Take last weekend’s Suwannee Springfest, for example. There were many slated acts, but the vibe in the park created a schedule that meant virtually nothing. It said that Larry Keel and Natural Bridge would be playing… then the stage would be filled with so many players that no more could fit.

This passion for playing music continued past the stage as well and, as Honest Tune will be doing at many events this summer, we cornered a whole lot of the slated acts to participate in our Live, Backstage & Unplugged series at several locations throughout the park. 

In this first part of the series, we will take you into the woods (with a storm swirling above) with Elephant Revival, between the buses (in a busy backstage area)with Emmitt-Nershi and by the outhouse (as the festival was winding down) with The Mosier Brothers.

So sit back, relax, listen, watch and enjoy as Honest Tune and GrooveStreet.TV present Live, Backstage & Unplugged at Suwannee Springfest 2012, part I. Stay Tuned for part II with Larry & Jenny Keel, Jim Lauderdale (who will unveil a brand new Robert Hunter tune), The Infamous Stringdusters and Donna the Buffalo.

Photos & Video: Outtakes, Interviews and On The Scene at The Festy

Several weeks ago, we presented a two-part series consisting of exclusive acoustic performances recorded while onsite at The Festy Experience. After doing so, we quickly realized that we not only had a copious amount of content remaining, but that we had yet to do the splendid event the true justice that it deserves.

After a long summer of events — some large, some small — The Festy Experience turned out to be something that was beyond imagination. In turn, it was the perfect way to “close out” a busy summer festival season.

From location to weather, lineup, activities and overall vibe, the event truly was “an experience.” As we noted in an earlier segment, it was akin to stumbling upon a diamond in the rough. 

In our attempt to provide the blissful weekend its due representation, we present Photos, Outtakes, Interviews and On The Scene at The Festy Experience with The Wood Brothers, Brett Dennen, The Infamous Stringdusters, Larry Keel, Sarah Siskind and Emmitt-Nershi Band.

The Festy Experience: Exclusive Acoustic Sessions, part I (VIDEO)

This past weekend, a diamond in the rough was found when we stumbled upon The Festy Experience. With a picturesque setting, the site that was nestled in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountain range played host to not only some of the finest bluegrass, Americana and roots music, but also to an impeccable vibe where strangers greeted strangers with smiles, courtesy and warmness.

In the middle of it all was a beautiful large house that we asked artists to pass through for a series of exclusive acoustic sessions with Honest Tune. Fortunately, they agreed and what happened within those walls was pure magic.

In this first part of the series, we are graced with stellar performances from Emmitt-Nershi Band, Sarah Siskind and Toubab Krewe.
