Preview & Ticket Giveaway | Del McCoury Band & Jeff Austin Band @ City Winery 1/17


It seems like we can always look forward to a few Chicago visits per year by Del McCoury.  City Winery is quickly establishing itself as "home turf" for the bluegrass legends.

They've been keeping themselves busy -- and taking a page from the Billy Bragg and Wilco playbook in the process -- by putting the finishing touches on a Woody Guthrie album.  It features lyrics by Woody that have never been put to music set to tunes by Del.  Says Woody's daughter Nora, "if my Dad would have had a band, it would have been The Del McCoury Band".


Del plays two shows this Sunday night.  While the 5pm show is nearly sold out, there are a couple of extra incentives to get you out to the 8pm gig.

- The band will share the stage with the Jeff Austin Band

- The "late" show is not all that late on a Sunday.  Plenty of time to get you to work on Monday morning, or to your next outing if you have the MLK holiday off

- We're giving away some free tickets!
