Strings & Sol :: 12.12.15 :: Now Sapphire Resort :: Puerto Morelos, Mexico
The 2015 installment of Strings & Sol rolled on Saturday at Now Sapphire Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. Attendees could pick from a variety of activities or excursions during the day or just catch up on rest in front of the pool or in their rooms. Activities included a mandolin workshop led by Yonder Mountain String Band’s Jake Jolliff and Sam Bush as well as an intimate Greensky Bluegrass afternoon set at The Palapa. Yonder were the first of the day to perform on the Main Stage set up on the beach and welcomed plenty of guests with Larry Keel and Drew Emmitt assisting on “On The Run” > “You’re No Good” > “On The Run,” while Steven Mougin and Andy Gosseling lent a hand on “Winds Of Wyoming” > “Girlfriend Is Better” during the sunset performance. Sam Bush also brought out many guests for his set such as Keel and Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone. Railroad Earth closed out the Main Stage on Saturday with a pair of sets that at points saw the group joined by Keel, Bush and Luke Bulla. Fruition then held court at The Palapa for a late night set.
Strings & Sol concludes on Sunday with activities, excursions, a sunset show from the Leftover Salmon followed by sets from Greensky Bluegrass and Yonder Mountain String Band on the Main Stage. The action then moves to The Palapa for a set from Larry Keel. Head here for coverage of Thursday’s Day One and here for coverage of Friday’s Day Two of Strings & Sol 2015.
