Concert Review by Rich Denis on 4/15/2016   

Yonder Mountain String Band stopped through Austin on the back half their Spring 2016 tour and brought friends Horseshoes and Hand Grenades from Wisconsin with them for a night of awesome music and dancing at Stubb’s in Austin.  With a sound that can best be described as high-energy old-time folk music, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades got the crowd warmed up on one of the final cold nights of Spring and ended their set with a roaring ovation. 

After a short break, YMSB took the stage for the first of their two sets.  Starting off with Traffic Jam, the band went into a long jam that included a Bruce Springsteen cover of It’s Hard Be a Saint in the City, a Del McCoury cover of All Aboard, and a couple of singles off their Black Sheep album, namely, Black Sheep and New Dusty Miller.  They ended the epic jam where they started by finishing off Traffic Jam.

Set two started off with Around You, another single off their Black Sheep which lead into thier classic Southern Flavor.  The rest of the set was a mix of both old and new with songs Love Before You Can’t, I’m Lost, and Annalee from their Black Sheep album with some older jams like All The Time and Robots.  When the set was over the crowd wanted more and YMSB delivered with an encore that included covers of Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side and Phish’s Scent of a Mule a new cover they have started playing this year. 

Yonder Mountain’s Sprint 2016 tour is now over but they have recently announced their new summer tour dates with their first stop at DelFest later next month. You can check out all their upcoming dates at their site
