Yonder, Leftover Salmon & More Play Harvest Fest

Yonder Mountain String Band, Leftover Salmon, Mickey Hart Band, North Mississippi Allstars, Sam Bush, Punch Brothers and many more played the Harvest Music Festival this past weekend. The annual Yonder Mountain String Band curated festival once again took place at Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, AK.

Yonder was supposed to play three full shows at this year’s Harvest Festival. However, inclement weather forced them to cancel their Saturday set— which was supposed to be their 1,500th show as a band— after only four songs. Nevertheless, fans were still treated to two other fantastic sets of bluegrass from Yonder Mountain String Band. The band was joined by Darol Anger on fiddle for the entirety of their Thursday and Friday shows, and Sam Bush made a guest appearance on vocals and mandolin for “Shake Me Up” during their Friday set.

Leftover Salmon played two shows at Harvest Festival as well. Darol Anger joined them on fiddle for their entire set on Saturday, while Jeff Austin joined them on mandolin and vocals for “Unplug That Telephone,” “Up On The Hill Boogie,” “Ask The Fish” and “Wake & Bake” on Friday. Austin also sat in with the Mickey Hart Band during their show on Friday.

They did play two other sets but for some us… say who traveled 1000 plus miles to get there and were there for three nights of Yonder… it was a bit disappointing. They should have played in the morning or something to make up for it… Weather was great then… Dont say rain or shine and then cancel the show because of rain. (It was a hell of a storm though).
