Yonder Mountain Stringband @ GrassRoots Live! at Shakori Hills Spring 2021

*Tickets are sold as “Pods” that can hold up to six (6) friends.

Colorado-based progressive bluegrass quintet Yonder Mountain String Band plays a brand of string band music as steeped in the jam band tradition as the high and lonesome bluegrass sound originated by Bill Monroe. Their amazingly deft interplay features driving rhythms, superb harmonies and virtuoso musicianship. Their enthusiasm is contagious, with frenetic bluegrass, improvised rock and countless other influences blended through their unique chemistry. At their best when they stretch out and play off each other during extended instrumental breaks, they live to make unexpected left turns into surprising new musical territory.

As the world continues to confront the COVID-19 pandemic, the non-profit 18-year -running Shakori Hills GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance has had to make the difficult decision to postpone it’s annual beloved full Spring Shakori Festival to the Fall, October 7-10, 2021.

In the spirit of beginning to safely bring live music back, however, Shakori Hills GrassRoots is very excited to announce GrassRoots Live! at Shakori Hills: a Pod-based, socially-distanced, limited capacity series of one night concerts on their large, outdoor Meadow Stage at their festival grounds in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Beginning on April 17th with Keller Williams, GrassRoots Live! at Shakori Hills will feature intimate, safe, limited capacity performances over the following weekends from Sam Bush Band, Del McCoury Band, Yonder Mountain String Band, Galactic, The Wood Brothers, Ryan Montbleau and Rising Appalachia before culminating with two performances from Donna The Buffalo to end the series on June 11 and 12.
