Bluegrass all-stars, Yonder Mountain String Band and Railroad Earth will bring their respective signature bluegrass/jamgrass sounds to fans in both Buffalo and Utica this August. With both bands performing at nearly all the major summer festivals this year, the intimate settings in which these two shows will bring is something to look forward to.
The summer of 2008 with Yonder Mountain in Lafayette Square is one of legends, if you were there you remember the funky, sweaty, down right dirty dance party we all were in! Jeff Austin began the night with a thank you to Buffalo for the kickstart to their summer tour, while Ben Kaufman took time to thank the great people of the Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital for allowing him to still feel his fingers and toes after an ‘accident’ having fun in the ocean.
