If firey bluegrass pickin', and tradition as deep as a country water well are in your bag, then don't miss the "Under the Influence Tour" with bluegrass heroes the Del McCoury Band and musical pioneers Leftover Salmon. This tour embarks on a journey through the rolling hills and plains of the Midwest, up the east coast and winds its way across the south on the way to a Halloween bash in the beautiful home of the Salmon boys at The Fillmore in Denver, Colorado.
Each night will start off with a traditional acoustic pickin' session by Leftover Salmon, followed by the Del McCoury Band. This should provide plenty of new exciting music to go with old favorites making up a great bluegrass set by Mr. Bluegrass himself. For the cherry on top, a plugged in set of Leftover Salmon doing what they do best will finish things off. As the San Francisco Chronicle put it "Few musicians combine country, bluegrass, Cajun and rock in such a rowdy, infectious, cure-all fashion as Leftover Salmon." Combine some jamming with Leftover, Del and his band, and who knows what else will happen!
So, come on out and catch one of these shows in a town near you. You won’t wake up regretting it. You may find yourself doing a little "Rise up and..." you know the rest!
