About Yonder Mountain String Band:
Yonder Mountain String Band plays music that blends bluegrass, rock and countless other influences to generate a sound that's uniquely their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band, but their music transcends any genre. Yonder’s sound cannot be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from [their] own experiences and doing the best job possible.” "The Show" is the second album with rock producer Tom Rothrock (Beck, Elliott Smith, Foo Fighters). While some might scratch their heads as to why a string band would want a rock producer, this decision was a natural choice for the band. The Show is the band's most varied and versatile album to date. It's bluegrass for the masses, acoustic tunes filled with dazzling chops, and it's fun to boot. A regular at bluegrass festivals like the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and the band's own Northwest String Summit as well as massive multi-stage events like Bonnaroo and Rothbury. Fans are no doubt drawn to Yonder's anything goes attitude, its humor and passion about music, and the band's ability to stretch out live. "Everyone appreciates good music. Some people want to go to a recital and some people want to party."
