Sam and Del at The Sitch

Our friends at The Bluegrass Situation have posted this charming video of Sam Bush and Del McCoury, recorded prior to their debut duet show at The Birchmere back on November 18.

It captures the two old friends backstage before the show, and during soundcheck, trading quips and licks all the while.


The Bluegrass Situation site is an online outgrowth of funnyman and banjo picker Ed Helms’ annual music event of the same name. They primarily cover the LA acoustic and bluegrass scene, but hope to expand this year into other markets under the able direction of Amy Reitnouer.
