Yonder Mountain String Band @ GrassRoots Live!
May 15 ~ 5:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Colorado-based progressive bluegrass quintet Yonder Mountain String Band plays a brand of string band music as steeped in the jam band tradition as the high and lonesome bluegrass sound originated by Bill Monroe. Their amazingly deft interplay features driving rhythms, superb harmonies and virtuoso musicianship. Their enthusiasm is contagious, with frenetic bluegrass, improvised rock and countless other influences blended through their unique chemistry. At their best when they stretch out and play off each other during extended instrumental breaks, they live to make unexpected left turns into surprising new musical territory.
