About Jacob Jolliff Band
The Jacob Jolliff Band is the next generation of bluegrass supergroups, led by one of the country’s premier contemporary bluegrass mandolinists.
Before joining Yonder Mountain String Band, Jacob Jolliff founded beloved New England roots band Joy Kills Sorrow, while attending Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship. The band logged three records, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles of worldwide touring. In 2012, Jolliff had the distinctive honor of being named the National Mandolin Championship winner. A fixture of the national bluegrass community, he has collaborated and shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Chris Thile, and David Grisman to name a few. When Joy Kills Sorrow disbanded in 2014, Jolliff got the call to join progressive bluegrass giant Yonder Mountain String Band.
The ensemble features some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country, including Jolliff’s long-time partner-in-crime, Alex Hargreaves, on fiddle. Considered one of best improvising violinists in the world, Hargreaves is the winner of The Grand Masters Fiddle Championship and The National Oldtime Fiddlers’ Contest. He is also a member of the Turtle Island String Quartet. On guitar is bluegrass upstart Stash Wyslouch, founder of The Deadly Gentleman and current member of The Stash! Band and the Bruce Molsky led Molsky’s Mountain Drifters. Bassist Jeff Picker was a staple of the Portland jazz scene before relocating to NYC. He now currently tours with bluegrass phenom Sarah Jarosz. (band lineup may be subject to change pending availability)
Jacob Jolliff continues to tour extensively with Yonder Mountain String Band year round, assembling his namesake band when he and his members’ relentless touring schedules permit, for rare, not to to be missed performances.
