Hit two of Ann Arbor's iconic hot spots with a delicious meal at Zingerman's Delicatessen and entry for two at The Ark for the performance of Yonder Mountain String Band on Friday, August 2 at 7:30pm.
Yonder Mountain String Band has always played music by its own set of rules. With their traditional lineup of instruments, the band may look like a traditional bluegrass band at first glance, but they've created music that transcends any genre. The Colorado-based quintet has crisscrossed the country over the past 20 years, playing music reflecting varied influence from the bluegrass of Del McCoury, Jimmy Martin, Bill Monroe, and the Osborne Brothers as well as the punk rock of Bad Religion, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys. Somewhere in between these two tent poles are early 20th-century classical composers and alternative rock bands like Grandaddy and The Postal Service. It's all funneled through the band's unique chemistry, honed since the members first met at an informal club performance in 1998. Fans are drawn to Yonder Mountain's anything goes attitude, its humor and passion about music, and its ability to stretch out live. Yonder Mountain's music is bluegrass for the whole world, acoustic tunes filled with dazzling chops, and it's fun to boot.
