The Travelin’ McCourys have announced more shows as part of their upcoming Fall Tour and a two-night stand surrounding New Year’s Eve. The group also revealed their first ever officially released studio recording.

The newly confirmed dates join the previously announced Grateful Ball shows slated for October with the Jeff Austin Band that each night will consist of a full set from both groups, followed by a show-closing collaborative set by both bands playing the music of the Grateful Dead. Following that run, the bluegrass outfit will appear on October 30 at Suwannee Hulaween in Live Oak, Florida and will then reconvene on November 10 at the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina.

After a few additional stops, The Travelin’ McCourys will begin a batch of Bluegrass Ball dates with an appearance at the Castle Theatre in Bloomington, Illinois. Nick Forster and Danny Barnes are on board for several of the collaborative Bluegrass Balls and Pert Near Sandstone will join in for three nights in Colorado in December. The tour is set to wrap with a pair of shows at Isis Music Hall in Asheville, North Carolina on December 14 and 15 with Andy Thorn and Travis Book & Friends enlisted for the Bluegrass Ball event.

The Del McCoury Band and Jeff Austin Band will be part of a two-night New Year’s Run on December 30 and 31 at Bluegrass Underground in the Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, Tennessee. On December 30, The Del McCoury Band will hold a Bluegrass Ball with special guests 333 feet below the earth’s surface in the Volcano Room. On New Year’s Eve, The Travelin’ McCourys and Jeff Austin Band will perform special afternoon sets of their original music before teaming up again that night for a Grateful Ball performance. Full details of the holiday run are here.

The Travelin McCourys also revealed their first-ever studio recording – a cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Cumberland Blues.” Expect “a new recorded song every month for the foreseeable future leading to the eventual release of a full album” and stream “Cumberland Blues” here:
