Del McCoury met David Grisman at the first show Del ever played (on banjo) with Bill Monroe in the spring of 1963 in Greenwich Village. Three years later, Del & “Dawg” – Grisman’s nickname bestowed by Jerry Garcia — played their first gig together in Troy, NY at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. They both celebrated the arrival of first-born sons, Monroe Grisman and Ronnie McCoury, within a month of each other. Through the years they have shared the stage at venues and festivals across the country and in 2012 released Hardcore Bluegrass, a unique collection of bluegrass classics, celebrating the nearly 50-year bluegrass friendship that these two legendary musicians have shared.
