Yonder has its roots in the year 1998, when the original quartet came together in Colorado. Through steadfast gigging in all manner of venues from small clubs to massive outdoor festivals, Yonder Mountain String Band quickly built a robust fanbase while continually experimenting to define its sound.
Some of the most fervent audiences were at jam band shows and festivals, where fans took readily to YMSB’s potent mix of the traditional bluegrass of Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers and Doc Watson and the improvisational sensibilities of the Grateful Dead and Phish. Also deeply ingrained in the band, albeit more subtly, was a fierce love for punk.
Enjoy the summer air as Yonder Mountain String Band takes the Newburyport Waterfront! This event is by donation, however VIP tickets are available. With a VIP ticket comes an open bar and snacks during the performance as well as a great view from the Firehouse balcony and a lawn space in front of the stage!
