Calling All 'Del Heads'

The Del McCoury Band, one of the greatest groups in bluegrass, came by Studio 4A yesterday, for a performance chat. The band was in town, recording a live album at The Barns at Wolf Trap. (Judging by the performance we saw — and heard — yesterday, the compact disc should sound great). I was struck by everyone's kindness, skill, and professionalism. Here's a video from the performance, of The Del McCoury Band's rendition of Richard Thompson's "1952 Vincent Black Lightning."
