Yonder Mountain String Band
Sunday, January 28, 2018 at Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
On January 28, 2018, Ponte Vedra Concert Hall presents Yonder Mountain String band.
Yonder Mountain String Band formed in Colorado in 1998, and released its first album together in 1999. Since then, the group has pushed and broken the boundaries of bluegrass and acoustic music, even delving into rock n’ roll with its trademark progressive and virtuosic improvisation.
The band’s recent albums include Black Sheep, the first of their releases to be produced by the band themselves. It’s also the first YMSB release to feature a traditional five-piece instrumental bluegrass lineup. Guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and bass were the arsenal of bluegrass instruments originally introduced in the 1940s, and are used as a foundation of tradition that propels their music into the future.
Their newest album Love. Ain’t Love, is undeniably the Colorado-based progressive bluegrass outfit’s most surprising, creative, and energetic studio excursion to date. Songs like “Chasing My Tail” and “Alison” are rooted in tradition but as current as tomorrow, animated by electrifying performance, vivid production, and the modernist power that has made Yonder one of the most popular live bands of their generation.
