Every time after seeing the Yonder Mountain String Band, I’m reminded of a conversation I had with a man in a Columbus bar around the year 1999. It went as follows, “This band is definitely going somewhere!” To which, they definitely did! This progressiveness of American bluegrass sweeping through all major cities and certain country towns is some of the best good-time fun I’ve experienced in all my years of touring through many genres of live music. When you see everyone in the crowd, bouncing, singing and smiling how can you not feel like this is the best spot to be on Earth!
All in all, Yonder Mountain is brilliant and going stronger than ever!
