Asheville, NC venue The Grey Eagle will present a pair of socially distant drive-in concerts by two of the most revered figures in the modern bluegrass world, Del McCoury and Sam Bush. The performances by the Sam Bush Band (September 20th) and Del McCoury Band (October 3rd) mark the first two installments in a series of off-site drive-in events being produced by The Grey Eagle at Maggie Valley Fairgrounds.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to start bringing live music back to Western North Carolina, and couldn’t be more proud of our internal team and outside collaborators who are making this all possible. We’re looking forward to having our long time friends Sam Bush and Del McCoury join us for what’s sure to be two very special evenings for our community,” noted venue owner Russ Keith in a press statement.
