Sunday night (5-29), Tyler Childers returned to the main stage of DelFest. But unlike in 2019 when he played a straightforward, daytime supporting set, this time Childers was the headliner backed by the festival’s namesake backing band, The Travelin’ McCourys.
Apparently Tyler Childers and his band were just down the road in Huntington, West Virginia practicing when they caught wind of the cancellation. Some calls were placed, and next thing you know, the roughly 200 people in attendance got a two-hour show from Tyler.
On Saturday, Senora May played the Mountain Mushroom Festival in Irvine, KY in her home region of Estill County. While performing, she announced that she is expecting, and then the assembled crowd got a rare treat as Senora handed off the guitar and mic to her “baby daddy.”
If you’ve every wondered what Tyler Childers would sound like with some of the best bluegrass pickers in the world behind him, you’ll have your opportunity at the 14th Annual DelFest with none other than The Travelin’ McCourys behind him.
