About This Episode
Marking the 20th anniversary of
their coming together, Yonder Mountain String Band's nature and
instincts remain progressive. Melding sophisticated songcraft,
irrepressible spirit, and remarkable instrumental ability, their
latest efforts are a testament to their organic, dynamic, and
intensely personal brand of contemporary bluegrass-fueled
Americana. Nearly two decades in, their inventiveness, versatility,
and sheer imagination shows no sign of winding down.
