For fifty years, Del’s music has defined authenticity for hard core bluegrass fans as well as a growing number of fans among those only vaguely familiar with the genre.
McCoury is something special, a living link to the days when bluegrass was made only in hillbilly honkytonks, schoolhouse shows and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, yet also a commandingly vital presence today, from prime time and late night talk show TV to music festivals where audiences number in the hundreds of thousands. “Here’s a guy who has been playing for fifty years, and he’s still experimenting-still looking to do things outside the box, to bring other kinds of music into bluegrass form,” says Americana music icon Richard Thompson, who saw his “1952 Vincent Black Lightning” turned into a bluegrass standard when McCoury brought it into the fold. “I think that’s the best bluegrass band, period. That’s it.”

Stuart's Opera House tickets have a processing fee added to the face value of each ticket. This almost covers the cost of our ticketing system, but in order to keep them as low as we can, we actually lose a little bit of money on most transactions. It's a small price to pay to keep this place going! Also, the reason the fee is not included in the ticket price is for accounting purposes. Thanks for understanding.
