Lee Boys/Travelin’ McCourys Tour
The Lee Boys transcend the boundaries set by musical genres; their music is an energetic blend of R&B, gospel, hip-hop, rock and country driven by the pedal steel guitar. The Travelin’ McCourys are purposely reminiscent of the Traveling Wilburys, and is comprised of Ron McCoury on mandolin, Rob McCoury on banjo, Jason Carter on fiddle and Alan Bartram on bass. They will be joined on this tour with three members from Dre’s Rude Awakening: Dre’ Anders (vocalist), Shane Theriot (guitar) and Johnny Neel (keyboards). This touring unit blends the best of the Appalachian tradition with the improvisational magic of jazz, folk and blues. The two bands recently performed together at Warren Hayne’s annual “Christmas Jam” in Asheville, NC, and received rave reviews.
