Photos: Yonder Mountain String Band

Each year like clockwork, Colorado’s Yonder Mountain String Band brings their high-energy neo-bluegrass tour through Asheville. This year, audiences enjoyed two nights of raucous music at The Orange Peel. If you missed it, Xpress got the chance to speak with guitar player Adam Ajiala. Read that Q&A here.

Lake Street Drive opened both shows, and fiddle man Jason Carter (The Del McCoury Band, The Travelin’ McCourys) joined the band for the entirety of Thursday’s show.
