Full Show Audio: Yonder Mountain String Band Covers Pink Floyd’s ‘Meddle’ At 2017 Northwest String Summit


Yonder Mountain String Band honored Pink Floyd during one of their performances at this year’s Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon. Their July 15 two set appearance featured a complete performance of the 1971 Pink Floyd record Meddle.

Last year YMSB offered NWSS attendees a cover performance of Floyd’s 1977 album Animals. Like in 2016, Yonder enlisted drummer Jay Elliott and keyboardist Asher Fulero for the second set Floyd tribute. The pair of guests first emerged during the penultimate song of the first set, “Fingerprint,” and they also augmented the set closing cover of Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man.”

YMSB opened their second set with the Meddle opening track “One Of These Days.” Next came “Pillow Of Winds” and their second rendition of “Fearless,” which made its debut during last year’s encore following the Animals set. The trio of “San Tropez,” “Seamus” and a 28-minute “Echoes” closed out the set two. One additional Pink Floyd classic was still to come as Yonder and their guests returned for an encore made up of The Wall cut “Run Like Hell.”
