Article Contributed by | Published on Thursday, June 12, 2008

Catch Colorado's Yonder Mountain String Band on the Main Stage (the 'What Stage') this year at Bonnaroo just prior to Robert Plant and Alison Krauss¹s set this Sunday, June 15 at 3:45. Yonder returns to Bonnaroo after a short hiatus having played on the festival in 2003, 2004, and 2005. They return to Bonnaroo with a brand new live record, Mountain Tracks: Volume 5, on their own label.

In addition to their big upcoming performance at Bonnaroo, where they¹ll perform in front of tens of thousands attendees, Yonder is set for a massive summer. The summer tour includes a co-headline tour with longtime collaborator and friend Keller Williams. The tour will make stops along the East Coast in June and pick up again in July on the West Coast (dates below). Following Bonnaroo, Yonder will head back home to Colorado to perform at the 35th annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Their main stage set at the festival is set for Saturday, June 21st at 4:15pm. They will also play two already sold-out 'NightGrass' shows at the festival- Sheridan Opera House and Telluride Conference Center.

Yonder will be making their way to the inaugural Rothbury festival on July 4th out on the Great Lakes of Michigan. Joining Yonder will be Phish's Jon Fishman on drums, who has performed with the band several times including at last year¹s sold-out show at Red Rocks. Yonder's own North West String Summit festival takes place July 18-20 and will feature six full sets by the band at the beautiful Horning's Hideout, just outside of Portland, OR. Darol Anger will join Yonder on fiddle. Other performers include: Keller Williams, Great American Taxi, Drew Emmitt and Billy Nershi, Bill Frisell and more.

Rounding out the summer, Yonder will bring it all back home to Colorado for a big return to Red Rocks on August 2nd, after a sold-out show last Labor Day weekend, their first time headlining the venue. The band can't wait to get back to their hometown crowd at the beautiful, natural outdoor amphitheatre. Keller Williams will kick off the show this year.

Following the summer tour, Yonder plans to head back into the studio with producer Tom Rothrock (Elliot Smith, Beck), who also produced the band¹s last studio album. The continuation of the studio collaboration with Rothrock at the helm promises to be an amazing creative process for the band.
