Yonder Mountain String Band Pay Tribute to Jerry Garcia

Yonder Mountain String Band honored Jerry Garcia on the 18th anniversary of his death this past Friday during the first show of their two-night run at the Sumter Amphitheatre in Papillion, NE. The band performed their first-ever cover of the Grateful Dead’s “Here Comes Sunshine” during the second set. That show also started off with a rendition of the traditional tune “Shady Grove,” which was a staple of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman’s repertoire. In addition, the gig included a take on Talking Heads’ “Girlfriend is Better”, as well as “God Bless America.”

Yonder Mountain String Band made their way to the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO the following night for a headlining performance. The group was joined by banjo virtuoso Danny Barnes for “Rag Doll” and “Funtime” during the beginning of the second set. That show also featured covers of The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence” and Pink Floyd’s “Goodbye Blue Sky.”
