Outdoors & Socially Distanced at the fairgrounds!

The Center for the Arts is thrilled to host a series of outdoor shows; intimate, and physically distant. The Summer Concert Series will take place on the Meadow Green at the Nevada County Fairgrounds on select Saturdays in June and July.



From the nascent sound of bluegrass that charmed hardscrabble hillbilly honkytonks, rural schoolhouse stages, and the crowning glory of the Grand Ole Opry to the present-day culture-buzz of viral videos and digital streams, Del is the living link. As a teen, he was captivated by the banjo playing of one of its masters, Earl Scruggs, and decided he’d be a banjo picker, too. Del joined Bill Monroe’s Blue Grass Boys in early 1963 providing him with a priceless trove of bluegrass tutelage direct from the source.Countless hours of recording sessions and miles of tireless touring dotted the decades. “We don’t have a setlist,” says Del. “We try and work in the new songs, but a lot of times it’s just requests from the audience. It’s more interesting for the band, for me, and for the audience because nobody knows what’s coming next.” With but a single change in membership in twenty seven years The Del McCoury Band shows unprecedented stability and accolades including membership in the Grand Ole Opry and two Grammy wins. Del says “I consider myself traditional at heart, but I don’t have any boundaries. I’m just a guy that likes to sing and play music.”
