Well my dear readers and friends , the music world has finally culminated to all of the festivals becoming open and operating back to normal. I have an exclusive list of so many different genre based independent festivals, and this one is one of the older ones.
I try with all my might to release some info and lineups every year, and just like the other festivals I cover each year I feature as much info as I can about each one. Now this year, I am extremely interested in this lineup because Mr. Tyler Childers will be performing using the Travelin’ McCourrys as a backup band.
That fact right there could go in so many different musical directions, will he be playing his own songs in a usual fashion, or will he perform his own songs using a Bluegrass fashion?
DelFest Academy is BACK with all-star instructors! Join us for DelFest Academy hosted by bluegrass legends The Travelin’ McCourys! Gear up for the festival by fine tuning your own skills in guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, bass, or dobro! 🎶

Every year this fine festival offers the community so many things to do during the 4 day run, that I believe it offers something for every age. But for me the enticing thing about this festival is the lineups, and I am still trying my best to attend this one.
One of the bands on this lineup I have been really impressed with in 2022 is a band called the Ghost Of Paul Revere. They released an album this year called Field Notes Volume 3, and I will be releasing some articles about that one soon.
