Pioneers.Innovators. These are but a few of the monikers that Yonder Mountain StringBand has worn since their inception. From the first Yonder shows in the fall of1998 to their drive-in tour of 2020, this touring force has brought theiradventurous musical spirit to countless venues for nearly a quartercentury. 

Yonder Mountain’s early success wasfueled by their desire to make a sound distinctly their own, whether performedon crowded stages or selling out the hallowed Red Rocks Amphitheater. Theirtraditional take on bluegrass sound was fused with their diverse musicalinfluences ranging anywhere from punk rock to the Grateful Dead. 

The combination of the band’s uniquepersonalities, extended musical improvisations, their jam band fan culture andtheir collaborative effort on writing and arranging original songs which spanmultiple genres—attracted more of a freewheeling jam crowd than the traditionalbluegrass scene which, in turn, exposed a whole new generation of fans toBluegrass.

Noband that has stood the test of time is without transformation and YonderMountain has had their fair share of change. In 2014, Yonder Mountain andJeff Austin announced they were parting ways. Austin went on to tour fulltime with his side project, The Jeff Austin Band, with a rotating lineup ofmusicians playing with him until his unexpected death in 2019.   


Foundingmembers Adam Aijala on guitar, Ben Kaufmann on bass, Dave Johnston on banjo,alongside the 2015 addition of Allie Kral on fiddle, and newcomer,multi-instrumentalist Nick Piccininni handling duties on mandolin, secondfiddle, and anything stringed. 


With their instrumental prowess and adventurousmusical spirit, Yonder Mountain String Band were — and still are — a pioneeringgroup in the emerging progressive bluegrass scene that now includes marqueeacts like Billy Strings, Railroad Earth,  GreenskyBluegrass and the Infamous Stringdusters. - Rollinig Stone


Thispast April, the band recorded their ninth studio album, scheduled to bereleased in late 2021.  The band will road test the new material thissummer and fall.
