Yonder Mountain String Band had a busy weekend at the Northwest String Summit at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, OR, with three nights of music and a slew of special guests, including members of a few other big names in the folk and jamgrass community.
On Friday, Yonder welcomed The Infamous Stringdusters’ Andy Hall and Jeremy Garret and Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone and John Skehan to end their first set, while Greensky Bluegrass’ Anders Beck, Leftover Salmon’s Andy Thorn and guitarist Jon Stickley came out for the second-set closer.
The following night, Yonder played a special second set of Pink Floyd’s
Animals album with drummer Jay Elliot and Asher Fulero on keyboard and vocals. The two also joined Yonder for the final two songs of their first set. See a couple of videos from the second set below.
For their final performance of the String Summit, Yonder pulled out all the guest stops in an extended one-set show, first welcoming Danny Barnes on banjo for a couple tunes before he was joined by Nicky Sanders on fiddle for more Pink Floyd, this time an “On The Run” with Yonder’s “Black Sheep” in the middle. Keller Williams and Larry Keel later came out for “Kentucky Mandolin,” and Keel helped Yonder round out their festival weekend with a few set-closing tunes and an encore of Lou Reed’s “Walk On the Wild Side” and Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Holland, 1945.”
