This year’s lineup once again reflects the all-encompassing musical community that festival hosts—make that 2023 GRAMMY-nominated festival hosts—The Del McCoury Band have cultivated over the years. Produced in conjunction with High Sierra Music and held at the Allegany County Fairgrounds in beautiful Cumberland, MD, DelFest originated from the desire to create a family-friendly music festival celebrating the rich legacy of McCoury music while creating a forum for world-class musical collaborations and showcasing fresh, new talent.
