The Yonder Mountain String Band is from Nederland, Colorado.
We first saw them at the Stafford Lake High Sierra Music Festival in October
of 1999 and saw them again this past October at The Abbey Pub in Chicago
when I was there for business. Their music is a powerful mixture of traditional
bluegrass, originals, and improvisational instrumentals. Their shows are
characterized by high-energy picking and foot-stomping melodies that make
your feet dance of their own accord!
After the show, Randy and I stopped off at the DiBufala Pizzeria
just around the corner from The Fillmore. We were starving! Food is a main
concern when you start the day at 6AM with Hankido workout and end the
day past midnight with a YMSB workout!
