Leftover Salmon Celebrates 20 Year Legacy With New Year's Eve Shows in Boulder

Leftover Salmon celebrates its 20th anniversary of music and will ring in the New Year with a pair of shows at the Boulder Theater on December 30 & 31. On New Year's Eve 1989 the band was born when members of Left Hand String Band, Drew Emmitt and Glenn Keefe, joined Vince Herman and members of Herman's band, The Salmon Heads, for a gig at Crested Butte's club the Eldo.

hermanThe name Leftover Salmon was created while on the drive from Boulder to Crested Butte that day and the gig that night created the band that's swimming on to ring in 20 years this New Year's Eve. The morphing of these two bands formed a group with a trademark sound that came to be known worldwide as 'Poly-ethnic Cajun Slamgrass'. That sound propelled the group from its humble Rocky Mountain beginnings to international critical acclaim while deeply influencing countless groups that soon followed in their footsteps, such as The String Cheese Incident, Yonder Mountain String Band and others.

Leftover Salmon's New Year's Eve shows go on sale to general public through the Boulder Theater starting Friday, September 18 online at 10 AM MST (www.bouldertheater.com) and at the Boulder Theater box office at 3 PM.  A limited amount of tickets are available now for Leftover Salmon fan club members; anyone interested in securing these early tickets can simply visit www.leftoversalmon.com and sign up on the email list. By signing up, fans will receive a code to purchase New Year's Eve tickets in advance of the public on-sale as well as a complimentary music download of the band's main stage set at the High Sierra Music Festival.
