A free concert with bluegrass supergroup The Travelin’ McCourys & Friends will take place immediately after the Tennessee Titans’ game on Sunday, Sept. 23, 2012 from 4:30-6:00 p.m. at Cumberland Park, 592 South 1st Street in Nashville, in the shadow of the Titans’ stadium on the banks of the Cumberland River.
The concert will kick off IBMA‘s World of Bluegrass Week, Sept. 24-30, at the Nashville Convention Center and the Ryman Auditorium, and a public celebration of September as “Worldwide Bluegrass Music Month.” IBMA – the International Bluegrass Music Association – is the professional trade organization for the global bluegrass music community.
Earlier in the day, family patriarch and IBMA Hall of Famer Del McCoury will perform the National Anthem at LP Field, just before the start of the Titans/Detroit Lions game (12 noon CST). Immediately following the game, The Travelin’ McCourys, as Del’s band members are known when they work as a quartet, will perform with some special guests at an open-air bluegrass concert at Cumberland Park.
Del will join his sons Ronnie and Rob onstage as a special guest with their new configuration, The Travelin’ McCourys, along with a surprise list of friends.
