Old Mozo Days

Our beloved Mt. Mansfield was originally known by the Abenaki name Mozodepowadso or “Old Mozo” for short. This summer celebrate by Vermont’s highest peak, explore all that Spruce Peak has to offer, and finish your day with dinner and a concert! Old Mozo Days feature indoor and outdoor events sponsored by the Spruce Peak Resort Association and the Spruce Peak Performing Arts Center.

Del & Dawg: Songs & Stories

Del McCoury met David Grisman at the first show Del ever played (on banjo) with Bill Monroe in the spring of 1963 in Greenwich Village. Three years later, Del & “Dawg” – Grisman’s nickname bestowed by Jerry Garcia —  played their first gig together in Troy, NY at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. They both celebrated the arrival of first-born sons, Monroe Grisman and Ronnie McCoury, within a month of each other. Through the years they have shared the stage at venues and festivals across the country and in 2012 released Hardcore Bluegrass, a unique collection of bluegrass classics, celebrating the nearly 50-year bluegrass friendship that these two legendary musicians have shared.
