Yonder Mountain String Band

Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music by its own set of rules. Bending bluegrass, rock and countless additional influences that the band cites, Yonder has pioneered a sound of their own. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band might look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance but they’ve created their own music that transcends any genre. Dave Johnston points out “What can be more pure than making your own music.” Yonder’s sound can't be classified purely as “bluegrass” or “string music” but rather it’s an original sound created from “looking at music from own experiences and doing the best job possible.” The band continues to play by their own rules on their new record The Show.
