Known for their exhilarating live shows and musicianship as well as their eclectic musical tastes, Leftover Salmon has been one of Colorado’s most beloved musical exports for three decades, picking up where bands like Little Feat, the Band and The Grateful Dead left off. Still inventive and keeping it fresh after three dacades, Leftover Salmon deliver a great batch of songs on Brand New Good Old Days. Along with the hopeful title track, which celebrates living in the moment, they deliver upbeat covers of songs made known by Conway Twitty (“Boogie Grass Band”), Soundgarden (“Black Hole Sun” as a bluegrass tune) and John Hartford (“Category Stomp”). There’s also co-founder Greg Garrison's “Left Unsung,” a tribute to Yonder Mountain String Band’s Jeff Austin, who committed suicide in June, 2019; and banjo player Andy Thorn’s “Red Fox Run” which takes a stand on gun violence and the NRA in the wake of mass shootings in Parkland, FL and his hometown of Boulder, CO.
