GRAMMY AWARD-WINNING ZYDECO MASTER STANLEY "BUCKWHEAT" DURAL, JR. RECUPERATING FROM RESPIRATORY ISSUES. He is progressing well; however, his doctors have advised him that he will need more time to fully recover.
The Colorado Riverfront Concert Series has booked The Travelin’ McCourys (more info below) to perform in his place.
All tickets issued for the Buckwheat Zydeco concert will be honored at The Travelin’ McCourys concert.
We wish Mr. Dural, Jr. a speedy recovery.
The Travelin’ McCourys do not stand still. They are on the road—and online—entertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres. It’s always different, always exciting, and always great music.
No other band today has the same credentials for playing traditional and progressive music. As the sons of bluegrass legend Del McCoury, Ronnie McCoury on mandolin and Rob McCoury on banjo continue their father’s work—a lifelong dedication to the power of bluegrass music to bring joy into people’s lives. And with fiddler Jason Carter and bassist Alan Bartram, the ensemble is loved and respected by the bluegrass faithful. But the band is now combining their sound with others to make something fresh and rejuvenating.
