YMSB
The Northwest's premier acoustic music festival returns for its sixth year to beautiful Horning's Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, on August 24-26. The event boasts three days of nearly all-acoustic music, culminating each night with main stage performances from musical hosts Yonder Mountain String Band, this year joined by special guest fiddler Darol Anger (David Grisman Quintet, Psychograss).

Also on the bill are New Riders of the Purple Sage with original members David Nelson and Buddy Cage along with Hot Tuna guitarist Michael Falzarano. Banjo legend and teacher of Steve Martin, Tony Trischka, will perform with full band. Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon will perform with his band and host the acclaimed String Summit superjam. Past year's Super Jam performers have included Chris Thile, David Grisman, Vasser Clements, Hot Rize, Jerry Douglas and Tim O'Brien.

On Friday evening (August 24), String Summit presents the fourth annual Band Contest, where four competition finalists will compete for the opportunity to perform on the main stage the following year.

The tree-lined landscape of Horning's Hideout is the perfect serene setting for an intimate weekend of all acoustic music. Located just 20 minutes west of Portland and nestled in a hidden canyon of the rolling hills, dense trees and peacocks, Horning's Hideout is truly one of Oregon's best kept secrets. All ages are welcome and children under 10 years old are free with a paying adult. Three-day festival passes include music, crafts and vending, and plenty of on-site camping and parking. A family/disabled camping area is available. Tickets are $115 - $135 and are on sale now at www.ticketswest.com.

yonder makes me smile

last night in a.c. was really something special. only around 100 people were there, and the boys totally embraced it and made it one hell of an experience for those of us who showed up. it was the kind of show that only happens once in a while, and it really showed how much yonder cares about their fans.

this festi looks sick

that's interesting adco, considering they are headlining red rocks in september and last time i caught them in columbus, the promowest was packed with so many people it took a good 20-30 minutes to go from one end of the venue to the other. sounds special.

Damn....100 people? thats crazy....I havent been to a YMSB show that wasn't completely sold out in 4-5 years.....They're headlining Red Rocks in Sept and it will be sold out....Funny how certain bands are so big in some places and relatively obscure in other areas.
Take Toubab Krewe, I heard they were really big out east, but they were giving tix away here in Boulder and only 75-100 people showed up. It really shows the different musical tastes by region.

saw YMSB last week -- easily one of the best badns out there right now -- if we could only get them to add some percussion -- even if they never do - i still think they are top notch!

Yonder made it rain at All Good. But it was All Good! I love it when they pay respects to John Hartford.
