Here’s the deal on Yonder Mountain, from Ann at Red Light Management:
The Yonder Mountain String Band, whose “Sepia-toned Americana … clean harmonies and breathtaking fretwork” (Metroland) have wowed fans and critics across the country … They’ll be performing music from their new studio album The Show, a rollicking 13-song showcase for their unique rock-inflected style of modern bluegrass, released Sept. 1 on Frog Pad Records. Jeff Austin (mandolin), Ben Kaufmann (bass), Dave Johnston (banjo) and Adam Aijala (guitar) fill their set lists with fan favorites from their 10-year deep catalogue and inventive covers of some of their favorite songs by bands like David Byrne, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and more.
