(playing with members of the Travelin' McCourys and Danny Paisley, as well as a set with the Marcus Roberts Trio), festival favorites Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, and Greensky Bluegrass.

Attendees can again expect to see one-of-a-kind collaborations, special guest sit-ins, various tributes to Del McCoury and his musical legacy, intimate appearances, both at unique “playshops"-informal workshops where the emphasis will be on performance rather than instruction- and in late night shows and picking sessions.

DelFest will also include a band competition, and once again the festival will be preceded by the 3-day DelFest Academy hosted by The Travelin' McCourys, where all levels of musicians can learn from some of the best pickers in the world (May 22-24).

Discount tickets are now on sale with the next price increase on March 6.
