Yonder Mountain String Band/Horse Feathers

When: Wed., Feb. 4, 8 p.m. 2015

A great entry point for Yonder Mountain String Band throughout its career has always been its live stuff, including a humorous take on Dillard Hartford Dillard's bluegrass-reggae-gospel classic, "Two Hits and the Joint Turned Brown." It's one of the great stoner songs out there, and Yonder Mountain's iconic recording of it is terrific. In fact, the whole Mountain Tracks series, which now sort of serves as a library of early-era Yonder, is a wellspring of good tunes. While the band steeps itself in bluegrass traditions, they also tend to flourish in the jam band scene: improvising nightly and letting their compositions out for a walk. Still, perhaps "tradition" isn't even an appropriate word here. Yonder has dabbled in all manner of genres, letting the music bubble and froth like a fine brew of music influences. (Sandy)
