Yonder Mountain String Band and Railroad Earth Collaborate on Joint Tour

Yonder Mountain String Band and Railroad Earth are currently three shows into their eight-show run together and have collaborated on several occasions. On their first night together, June 26 at Sumter Amphitheater in Papillion, NE, Yonder and Jeff Austin-substitute Allie Kral and Jake Joliff joined Railroad Earth in the encore for “Ruben’s Train.”

The following night in Kansas City, MO at Crossroads, Yonder took their turn as headliner and welcomed out Railroad Earth for a two-song encore of “Everybody Knows This is Nowhere” and the closing “Shady Grove.”

While both bands performed at Milwaukee’s Summerfest last night, there were no collaborations between the two. However, Yonder did welcome out Lake Street Dive for a run through “Criminal” and “Second That Emotion.”

Yonder and Railroad will once again share the stage on July 4 in Cincinnati, OH.

Jeff Austin substitute is kind of mean to the person, yonder and Jeff. How about just saying the persons name and that they play mandolin.

I second that emotion!

“Jeff Austin Substitute” is indeed lame. Don’t you guys have editors?

Anyone have any idea who is closing out the show in Cincinnati??

I agree as well- I would also like to know a little more show details. You guys did multiple pieces on the break up and what not it would be nice to know how the music was- the sound-energy-vibe-was there a lot of chatter on stage- there is a lot of hate and funny bs on this site but most of us still want to know about the music

Looks like RRE is closing out the show with Yonder starting at 9:30.

Jake Joliff is a WAY better mandolin player than Jeff Austin. That said, I will miss Jeff Austin as a member of YMSB.
