DELFEST ANNOUNCES ARTIST ADDITIONS;
TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW AT DELFEST.COM
DelFest have announced
additions to the lineup, including the versatile Bela Fleck (playing with
members of the Travelin’ McCourys and Danny Paisley, as well as a
set with the Marcus Roberts Trio), festival favorites Railroad Earth,
Leftover Salmon, and Greensky Bluegrass.
Attendees can again expect to see one-of-a-kind collaborations, special
guest sit-ins, various tributes to Del McCoury and his musical legacy,
intimate appearances, both at unique "playshops"-informal workshops
where the emphasis will be on performance rather than instruction-
and in late night shows and picking sessions.
DelFest will also include
a band competition, and once again the festival will be preceded by
the 3-day DelFest Academy hosted by The Travelin' McCourys, where
all levels of musicians can learn from some of the best pickers in the
world (May 22 - 24).
Discount tickets are now on sale with the next price increase on
Deluxe (VIP) packages and RV passes are also available.
Information and tickets at www.delfest.com.
DelFest is May 24 through 27, 2012 at the Allegany County
Fairgrounds in Cumberland, MD (2.5 hrs from Baltimore and DC).
