Het noord Nederlands bluegrass duo Janis McCoury bestaat uit Liz Meesters-Janssen (zang & contra bas), Peter Noorman.
De muziek die deze band maakt bestaat uit hard driving en high lonesome bluegrass liedjes afgewisseld met gevoelige singer/songwriter nummers, waaronder ook eigen geschreven materiaal.
De naam Janis McCoury is dan ook een samensmelting van namen van bluegrass grootheid Del McCoury en Janis Ian, singer/songwriter icoon.

De bandleden hebben hun jaren lange muzikale ervaringen opgedaan in onder andere de voormalige bands Close to Home, Clinch Mountain Backstep, Grass Grow en Stringtime. Ze geven met gevoelige zang, harmony zang en frivole en strakke instrumentale solo’s een heel eigen geluid aan deze band.

De band heeft op meerdere internationale festivals opgetreden met diverse internationale gastmuzikanten zoals de Italiaanse dobroïst
Paolo Ercoli (dobroïst bij de Italiaanse bluegrass band 0039), de Italiaanse gitarist Luca Bartoli (gitarist bij de Italiaanse bluegrass band 0039), bassist Danny Booth (was contrabassist bij Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen), en contrabassist Eric Levenson (vroeger contrabassist bij Joe Val, nu contrabassist bij Amy Gallatin & Stillwaters).
