Look Ma No Mics

Yonder Mountain String Band

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.
