DelFest 2019

I’ve had a little bit of time to come to grips with the terrific time that was DelFest 2019 and now it’s time for me to share with you some thoughts, sounds, and discussions from what was one of my very favorite weekends since… last year’s DelFest! This is one of the finest festivals in the land. Everything from the music, to the location, to the crowds in attendance, is just right. We’re going to listen to some of the music from the weekend, some interviews that I conducted while I was there, and while this episode is certainly bluegrass-centric, we’re still going to get a healthy dose of Grateful Dead…Sort of.

We’re going to hear from Billy Strings, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Larry Keel Experience, The Travelin’ McCourys, Railroad Earth, and The Del McCoury Band. That’s just a small sampling of the great music that I saw. I try to run most of them down in the show.

After all the DelFest talk, I thought you might like to hear a little Jerry Garcia. In keeping with a popular discussion point from the weekend and the bluegrass festival thing, we’ll be checking out a short set of Old And In The Way from the Marin County Bluegrass Festival in 1974.
