High Country coming from Leftover Salmon

high_countryJam band heroes Leftover Salmon have a new album ready for release, and set to drop November 28. It’s called High Country, a double entendre that fans of the Salmon will readily understand.

The group is led by founding members Drew Emmitt on mandolin and Vince Herman on guitar, who reunited in 2007 after laying the Salmon down for several years in 2005. Each had solo careers, but continued to do reunion shows together until deciding it was time to return to regular performing status for Leftover Salmon a few years later.

Other regular members include Andy Thorn on banjo, Greg Garrison on bass, Jose Martininez on drums, and their newest member, Bill Payne from the legendary ’80s blues/rock band, Little Feat, on keys.

The guys are using this live video, shot in September at the Ryman Auditorium, as a tease.


The band will do a pair of shows in Boulder to celebrate the release November 28-29, and their traditional New Year’s Eve shows in Chicago, followed by more active touring in 2015.
