Yonder Mountain String Band Releases New Live Record:
Mountain Tracks: Volume 5 :: Street Date - April 15, 2008
Yonder Mountain String Band is known for its high-energy, improvisational live shows, never playing the same set twice. This release, on the band's own Frog Pad Records, marks the 5th volume in their lauded series of live albums, Mountain Tracks, capturing the essence of a live Yonder show.
Mountain Tracks 5 is a double-disc CD featuring the unreleased and in-demand live show from Columbus, OH at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion(July 21, 2007). It also features a compilation disc of the best live tunes handpicked by the band from the past couple of years.
As bassist Ben Kaufmann notes, "it's a 'through-the-years' set of music" with the material ranging from 2004 through 2007. The compilation album has been sequenced so that it recreates the flow of an actual live show.
Twisting and bending their traditional bluegrass instrumentation (mandolin, banjo, guitar and bass) with rock, improvisation, and fine songwriting, Yonder has pioneered their own, distinguished sound, one they represent each night in their live shows. This live album truly captures that unique sound and live energy that is Yonder Mountain String Band. Experience Mountain Tracks 5 April 15, 2008.
In support of the new release, Yonder will be on tour in April and playing many major festivals this summer.
