All Del on Sirius for New Years

Del McCourySirius Bluegrass (Channel 65) is giving New Year’s Eve over to Del McCoury, with 36 hours of back-to-back McCoury.

Starting Monday (12/31) at noon and running throughout New Year’s Day, Sirius Bluegrass will air encore presentations of their Hand Picked with Del program, hosted by McCoury. Del plays his favorite bluegrass songs (old and new), and shares stories from his long career in the business.

The only interruption from the Hand Picked Del-a-thon comes at 10:00 p.m. (EST) when Sirius will carry a live broadcast of the New Year’s Eve McCoury Family Pickin’ Party from The Ryman in Nashville. In addition to The Del McCoury Band, the show will feature performances from Ronnie Bowman, Leftover Salmon’s Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman, Jon Fishman (from Phish), and Steep Canyon Rangers.

It’s sure to be a rollicking good time, and a fine way to welcome 2008.
