Yonder Mountain Releases Free Live Music Compilation

Submitted by JP Cutler Media on Fri, 12/04/2015 - 11:13 am

In the beginning days of Yonder Mountain String Band, dedicated fans helped support the emerging group by recording their shows and following Yonder on the road. Free archives of YMSB's live performances quickly spread like wild fire to music fans across the country, and what began with only a few individuals manifested into a community known at the Kinfolk. To this day, many Kinfolk still follow the band for strings of tour dates at a time.

Yonder Mountain String Band Kicks Off Fall Tour 2015

Submitted by JP Cutler Media on Wed, 10/28/2015 - 7:14 pm

In their almost two decades of electrifying live shows, singular studio work and relentless drive to explore the frontiers of the bluegrass sound, the only thing Yonder Mountain String Band can't seem to do is stop. Their most recent studio recording, 2015's stellar Black Sheep, has added to an already impressive collection of the band’s original compositions and is easily their most sonically varied and accessible release to date.

It was a perfect summer day for a bluegrass jamboree on the beautiful stage at Red Rocks Amphitheater. Three powerhouses at the top of the bluegrass music scene were sharing the stage at one of America’s best outdoor venues and the home of the headliner, Yonder Mountain String Band.

YMSB Hits the Road for 2015 Fall Tour

Submitted by JP Cutler Media on Mon, 09/14/2015 - 4:22 pm

For nearly 17 years, Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock n' roll and improvisation. YMSB has always played music of their own design, in the process attracting a devout coterie of fans that often resembles a tight knit family on an epic musical journey as Yonder traverses the country with an ever-rigorous tour schedule.

Northwest String Summit 2015 | Review

Submitted by Chris Naugle on Sat, 08/22/2015 - 1:09 pm

There was a decidedly day-glo hue to the bluegrass played at this year’s Northwest String Summit (July 16-19). Many of the musical merry-makers, and deadicated patrons alike, appeared to still be basking in the warm fluorescent after-light of the “Fare Thee Well” experience.  The haunting presence of the now officially departed Dead continues to populate and positively inform a new generation of musical/spiritual adventurers.

All Good Music Festival 2015 | Review

Submitted by Philip Emma on Mon, 08/17/2015 - 7:53 pm

After having the greatest musical experience of my life for three shows in Chicago at the Dead’s last shows together less than a week before, I did not think it was so possible for that music high to continue, but the lineup and energy of the 2015 All Good Music Festival kept my music fix alive and well. Rolling deep with one of the best crews I have had in a while and an RV led to three days of uninterrupted music from one stage to another.

Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival 2015 | Review

To return to a point in your life that you have already lived is metaphysical. Déjà vu, as most of us call it, feels mystical, even if it has a chemical explanation. Scientific evidence aside, to relive something that you have lived before is an experience that seems to connect us with something beyond ourselves. We can both be in the moment and be able to predict (or at least have the feeling that we are predicting) what is coming around the next corner. But to experience déjà vu and to be able to improve upon the actions that once were? Now that is something different altogether.
