Iconic Colorado-based newgrass jamband Leftover Salmon recently announced a new album titled Grass Roots, set to release just in time for their festival on The LAWN. On Grass Roots, Leftover Salmon reflect on its bluegrass and festival campground origins with a set of songs that draws from the repertoires that The Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band played when they first jammed in a Telluride Bluegrass Festival campground. Collaborating with jam scene icons Billy Strings, Oliver Wood, and Darol Anger, and with the recent addition of Jay Starling on reso-guitar, lap steel and keys to the band’s official lineup, Leftover Salmon have all the instrumental firepower needed to deliver hard driving versions of bluegrass standards and grassed-up versions of songs from Bob Dylan, David Bromberg, and the Grateful Dead.
