Masters of Bluegrass the Bluegrass MOB, featuring Del McCoury on guitar and vocals, Bobby Osborne on mandolin and vocals,J.D. Crowe on banjo, Bobby Hicks on Fiddle and Jerry McCoury on bass and vocals. Born out of picking parties on Del McCoury’s back porch, the masters of bluegrass have come together to give the fan an experience of days gone by! Bobby Osborne co leader of the Osborne Brothers is a contemporary of Bill Monroe, Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs. He and his brother recorded the Tennessee State Song “Rocky Top”in 1982. JD Crowe is most known for forming the New South , which was the most revolutionary bluegrass outfit of its time. Originally, the band consisted of guitarist Tony Rice, mandolinist Ricky Skaggs, dobroist Jerry Douglas, and fiddler/bassist Bobby Sloan, and they played a wildly eclectic brand of bluegrass on electric instruments. When they released their debut, J.D. Crowe & the New South in 1975 on Rounder Records, it caused an instant sensation — it marked a genuine turning point in the sound of the genre. Bobby Hicks played fiddle with Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys in the 1950’/s in 1981 he joined Ricky Skaggs band and played fiddle in it for 23 years. Jerry McCoury is Del McCoury’s brother, was in the Dixie Pals in the 1960’s. This will be for 2013 only.
