RockyGrass Archives 2014: Red Knuckles & the Trailblazers showed up half way through the Sunday evening set of Hot Rize. As Hot Rize relaxed in their luxury tour bus, Red Knuckles & the Trailblazers spread a little Country into the Planet Bluegrass grounds.
RockyGrass Archives 2013: For more than 50 years, Del McCoury's music has defined authenticity for hardcore bluegrass fans. To close the opening night of the 41st RockyGrass, the Del McCoury Band took the stage for a stellar evening and one giant shooting star that made it's way across the sky during the second encore.
RockyGrass Archives 2012: Unforgettable Friday night heroics from Punch Brothers at RockyGrass. Throughout the evening the gentlemen of this super group were dazzling. I'm not sure anyone saw the Beck cover coming, but as Chris Thile says, "Beck is Bluegrass!" - especially when you play him like that. Who's feeling young now?
