As if this week’s North Mississippi Allstars show at Slowdown isn’t enough, Colorado’s Yonder Mountain String Band makes a stop in Lincoln to further squash your thirst for jam bands. The progressive bluegrass quartet has generated a massive following of loyal fans since the group’s 1998 inception. Much like Phish or The Grateful Dead, Yonder Mountain relies heavily on touring to spread their music and share their love of all things strings. Banjos, mandolins, bass guitars and acoustic guitars are integral to the formula, which lend the band their signature sound. Comprised of mandolinist Jeff Austin, banjoist Dave Johnston, bassist Ben Kaufmann and guitarist Adam Aijala, Yonder Mountain haven’t released an album since 2009’s The Show, but are still on the road. Catch their high-energy live show this Saturday (Kyle Eustice).
Yonder Mountain String Band, November 12, at The Bourbon Theatre, Lincoln, 9 p.m. Tickets are $20/adv and $25/dos. Visit www.onepercentproductions.com for more information.
