The eighth annual DelFest 2015 is set to take place over Memorial Day Weekend. With an all-star lineup, The Del McCoury Band welcomes back Old Crow Medicine Show and Railroad Earth; two fan favorites from previous years. In addition, Trampled By Turtles returns after reaching a career high with their 2014 Wild Animals release. Other performances include former Drive-By Truckers band member, Jason Isbell, Leftover Salmon, Lake Street Dive, Hot Rize, Greensky Bluegrass, and of course the Travelin’ McCoury’s. David Grisman is this year’s Artist at Large!
DelFest is once again located at the Allegany Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD, along the Potomac River. As a festival that thrives on the family-friendly ideal, the musical collaborations are potentially limitless given this year’s line-up. Attendees can expect intimate appearances of various artists during workshops, late night shows and informal picking sessions. In keeping with tradition, the Music Academy, hosted by The Traveling McCoury’s, will immediately follow the festival.
Don’t miss the late night shows located in the DelFest Music Hall as these are separately sold tickets. Late night artists include: The Larry Keel Experience, Railroad Earth, Steep Canyon Rangers, Greensky Bluegrass, Dead Winter Carpenters, Leftover Salmon, Jeff Austin Band and Travilin’ McCoury’s.
DelFest also offers a variety of activities. The Kidzone has fun events scheduled daily and “Playshops” which are informal performance focused workshops. Food venders and crafters will line the Grandstand music meadow providing a unique shopping experience.
Four day, three-day and single day festival tickets are currently available at www.DelFest.com
