Bluegrass legend Del McCoury is the master of many things in the realm of bluegrass. But did you peg him for a master of suspense?
After an excruciatingly long wait, the folks over at High Sierra announced this year’s lineup for Cumberland, Md.’s not-strictly bluegrass festival, Delfest today.
The announcement came in the form of personalized images of each band’s name—digital fliers, more or less—posted to the festival’s social media sites.
After a slow trickle of 5 or 6 band names, they finally burst the dam and released the poster for the event, and quelled the hollering.
Spoiler alert: The Del McCoury Band will be headlining.
