The Yonder boys opened up spring tour 2002 at the venerable Hoyt Sherman in Des Moines. Good choice! Darol Anger played the entire show as a guest artist on fiddle. Another good choice! These acoustic newcomers to Colorado’s high country music scene delivered their pure sounding “old time bluegrass” to a highly spirited crowd of Iowans– doing plenty of dancing, despite there being no drummer anywhere near the stage. The highlight of the show for me personally was the Ruben & Cherise encore (with no microphones). That alone was worth the drive.
