Yonder Mountain plots fall tour

Colorado’s Yonder Mountain String Band will be making their way through the Midwest and East Coast this fall, including highly anticipated stops in New York City and Boston, and two-night stands in Burlington, Lawrence, and of course Chicago, the band’s home-away-from home.

The two-night stand in Chicago marks the band¹s and fan favorite weekend – the annual "Kinfolk Celebration," a gathering of the band¹s core fans who travel in for the show.

The fall tour will also include a special trip to Yosemite, California for Las Tortugas Festival on Halloween night.

It’s been a big year for Yonder, who just finished up their summer tour at Red Rocks, just forty miles from where they became a band nearly twelve years ago. 

This year’s Red Rocks appearance left a profound mark on the band.  Just after their headline performance, forest fires broke out in the Fourmile Canyon, an area just outside of Boulder.

As a result, Yonder banded together and decided to put on a benefit show for the fire victims.  They called upon their friends for assistance, and the ³Fourmile Canyon Revival" was born, which will take place on October 9 at 1stBank Center in Broomfield, CO, featuring Yonder, The String Cheese Incident, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Drew Emmit and Vince Herman, and all four members of Phish.

Just prior to the benefit, Yonder will join Widespread Panic in Charleston, South Carolina on October 2 before performing at the 10th Anniversary of The Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Francisco on October  3.  Following the benefit concert, Yonder will host "Yonder Mountain’s Harvest Music Festival" on Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas on the October 14 weekend.  The festival features a line-up of musical cohorts hand-picked by Yonder. 

Following the festival, the Fall Tour kicks off.  Don’t miss it.
