Yonder Mountain String Band Fall Tour Announced!
Earlier this week, Yonder Mountain String Band announced they will be hitting the road for a Fall tour! The Colorado-based Jamgrass veterans will embark on an 18 show stretch starting in North Carolina, and ending with five much awaited shows the northeast. In the spirit of a true jam band, Yonder is always on the road, and always spitting out new music. Before even wrapping up their current summer tour they’ve already got the Fall mapped out, which you can view below. It’s truly amazing to see the momentum these guys still play with after being together for almost twenty years without any hiatus.
Breaking boundaries in both bluegrass and jam music, they have started a musical revolution. Yonder is indisputably unlike any other Jam band to date; no drummer, no gimmicks, exclusively acoustic and raw. These four individuals have pioneered their own style, brand, and community in music. By means of pure artistic genius they managed to take true American music and take it to a once unfathomable level. Despite the fact they only use acoustic instruments, their compositions are rich with layers, and endless in depth. Their eccentric frontman and mandolin player Jeff Austin, successfully transformed an instrument once only used for percussive rhythm in bluegrass bands and turned it into a fierce lead force in the group. Other than jam giants The Disco Biscuits, they were also one of the first bands to implement, and fully master the concept of inverting and splitting their songs. YMSB has mastered both a timeless genre and the art of deep improvised jams, simultaneously propelling forward and backward. As the decades carry on, and artists fall from the stage into the streams of time and memory, they have continued to rise.
Since 2010 they haven’t played more than two gigs a year in New England or New York. Needless to say, this is a much anticipated run for their followers in those regions.
