Bluegrass music is currently experiencing widespread popularity among mainstream

audiences but transforming the vintage sound into music that could gain popular appeal

didn’t happen overnight. At 25 years old, Yonder Mountain String Band continues to

exist at the forefront of the progressive bluegrass scene as undeniable innovators and

pioneers of the modern jamgrass movement. Blending bluegrass with elements of rock,

alternative, psychedelic and improvisational music, Yonder Mountain String Band

brought their high-energy acoustic sound and light show into rock n’ roll settings with

tremendous success, proving it was possible for a bluegrass band to not only exist but

excel in a rock world, without drums. The inroads they made created opportunities for

like-minded acoustic bands to perform at festivals, rock clubs, theaters and stadiums

previously considered off-limits for string bands. Yonder Mountain's high-energy sound,

compelling original music and anything goes attitude cultivated a spirit of collaborative

improvisation that continues to fuel today’s progressive bluegrass and jamgrass scenes.

It is a testament to the legacy of Yonder Mountain String Band that their original

songs and unique interpretations of covers are regularly performed by next generation

bands in the scene.

Yonder Mountain String Band celebrates their quarter century mark with a Grammy

Nomination for their 2022 release Get Yourself Outside. Band members Adam Aijala

(guitar, vocals), Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), Dave Johnston (banjo, vocals) and Nick

Piccininni (mandolin, banjo, fiddle, vocals) co-wrote all tracks on the album over zoom

sessions when Covid shut down the music touring industry. Yonder Mountain was

recently honored with an induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame alongside

friends and legends Leftover Salmon, Hot Rize, The String Cheese Incident and The

Fox Theater (where they played their very first show as a band in1998). Yonder

Mountain was officially inducted during a long-awaited, but meaningful ceremony that

took place on stage after their set at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s 50th anniversary

this past June.
