American Legacies: Preservation Hall Jazz Band and The Del McCoury Band
Since opening its doors to the public in 1961, it has been the mission of the Preservation Hall to showcase the national treasures of traditional New Orleans jazz music. Fifty-one years later, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band has featured many of the Crescent City’s finest and most exciting musicians. These unforgettable, multi-generational players proudly carry on the traditions passed forward from the most prolific jazz heritage on earth. The Del McCoury Band is a world-class bluegrass ensemble that performs original and traditional compositions with eloquent harmonies and “ferocious, purebred musicianship” (USA Today). The most honored group in bluegrass history, they routinely fill venues from Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center to the Grand Ole Opry. Together in concert, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the Del McCoury Band create a seamless blend of soul-lifting traditional harmonies as the high and lonesome sound of the Appalachians meets the hot and lively jazz of New Orleans.
