Pioneering jam-grass group Leftover Salmon announced their plans for a 2020 winter tour schedule on Tuesday.
The tour will kick off with a string of dates across Texas starting at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston on January 15th, then the Empire Control Room & Garage in Austin (1/16), Gas Monkey Live! in Dallas (1/17), and finally Gruene Hall in New Braufels (1/18). Once Leftover Salmon leaves the “Lone Star State,” they’ll continue with scheduled stops in Nevada, California, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho. The band’s 2020 winter run will come to an end following their performance at Boogie at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, CO the weekend of March 20th-22nd.
The current incarnation of Leftover Salmon has been together longer than any other lineup in the band’s 30-year history. Built around founding, core members Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman, the group now includes Andy Thorn on banjo, bassist Greg Garrison, drummer Alwyn Robinson, and keyboardist Erik Deutsch.
“A long strange swim it’s been for Salmon,” Vince Herman said in a statement shared via press release with the tour’s announcement. “Through many incarnations, losses, joys, festivals, bars, barns, mountains, rivers, oceans, benefits, weddings, and goat yoga sessions; we have kept the big ball rolling with a love of music and each other to keep ourselves plowing ahead the only way we know how.”
