DelFest Returns, Moving to September

Del McCoury‘s festival, usually held on Memorial Day weekend, is moving to the fall for safety concerns.  As always, the Maryland-based festival will have a great mix of traditional and progressive bluegrass and Americana artists. Along with Del and his band, the preliminary lineup features Old Crow Medicine Show, Leftover Salmon, Infamous Stringdusters, Sam Bush,  and Mandolin Orange among many others. Set in the beautiful Allegheny Mountains,  DelFest has always been a highlight for acoustic music fans.
