DelFest lists late-night shows and "playshops"

Filling out the program for the first DelFest, coming May 23-25 in Cumberland MD, High Sierra music announced the schedule of late night shows and artist "playshops."

Late night programming is a popular feature of jam-band festivals, and the opening night midnight show offers a full cast of top jammers—Jon Fishman, Drew Emmitt, Billy Nershi, Tyler Grant and other special guests—playing with Ronnie and Rob McCoury, followed by a full set by jam-band Railroad Earth.

Saturday and Sunday nights begin at midnight with The McCourys and Friends All-Star Jam, with follow-up sets by Mike Garris & Area 51 and The Davisson Brothers, respectively. Late night shows are held in an intimate indoor room and require a separate ticket for admission.

Artist "playshops" are a trademark feature of High Sierra Music Festival, the flagship event of DelFest producer High Sierra Music, which will import that concept to DelFest with interactive artist sessions in the fairground's Multipurpose Building throughout the festival weekend.

Playshop artists include the mandolin duo of Ronnie McCoury and Drew Emmitt, Billy Nershi and Tyler Grant of the Emmitt-Nershi Band, songwriter Ronnie Bowman, former Phish drummer Jon Fishman, multi-instrumentalist David Bromberg, and the trio of McCoury, Fleck, and McCoury.

In addition to the mentioned artists, the main stage schedule includes Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley, Keller Williams, David Grisman, Sam Bush, Sparrow Quartet, Punch Brothers, Steep Canyon Rangers and many more. Visit the DelFest website for complete details.
