Colorado jamband favorites Leftover Salmon announced dates for their upcoming Spring Migration Tour. Leftover Salmon hits the road on April 17th igniting the southern states with their unique blend of polyethnic cajun slamgrass. Exploding with energy and a brand new album titled LIVE (pronounced LIV), LOS performs festive up-tempo shows that combine the vocal talents of guitarist Vince Herman with the speed-of-lightning mandolin and electric guitar licks of Drew Emmitt. Greg Garrison laces his groovemeister bass playing with drummer Jose Martinez and the belted southern rock vocals of Bill McKay against the background of his rippin' hot keyboards.
Fellow Compass artist Matt Flinner will join LOS on banjo for the tour; Flinner along with Tony Furtado, Scott Vestal, and Reverend Jeff Mosier have been rotating in place of Mark Vann since November. LIVE, to be released on May 7th, is a tribute to Mark Vann, a founding member of LOS and celebrated banjoist, who lost his battle with cancer on March 4, 2002.
The spring tour starts in Arizona on April 17th and heads east to a handful of south east markets. Stops include The Old Settlers Fest near Austin, TX, City Fest Live in Charlotte, NC and a final stop in New Orleans, LA for the second weekend of Jazz Fest.
Tickets for the tour go on sale at LeftoverSalmon.com Saturday March 30, 2002 at 9:00am PT.
