New Yonder Mountain album for 2011

Word has come that a new Yonder Mountain String Band studio project is in the works for next year. The bluegrass-fusion specialists are recording in Colorado now, and will hit the road in late January for 3 solid weeks of frantic touring.

To make this 2011 tour special, the band is asking fans to help select their first set for this run. As they put in on the band web site…

“Anything you’ve ever wanted to hear us play? Any songs or jams you’ve been longing for? Drop us your suggestions on Facebook, Twitter, or and help us make this happen. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. So send in your ideas and we’ll plug it in, turn it up, and rock.”

YMSB is Adam Aijala on guitar, Jeff Austin on mandolin, Dave Johnston on banjo, and Ben Kaufmann on bass. Find full ’11 tour details at
