JamGrass TV just debuted a new pro-shot video of Yonder Mountain String Band’s performance at the 2016 Northwest String Summit. In the twelve-minute video, banjo extraordinaire Danny Barnes joins up with the jamgrass act for his songs “Get It While You Can” and “Going Where They Do Not Know My Name.” Last summer, Yonder Mountain performed three times across Northwest String Summit, welcoming other friends such as Andy Hall, Tim Carbone, Anders Beck, Andy Thorn, Jon Stickley, and others during their Friday and Saturday performance.
The collaboration captured in the video fell on the final day of the festival, July 17th, and was the first special guest to help Yonder Mountain with their final set of the weekend. Following Barnes’ sit-in, Nicky Sanders immediately came out to join the band during an “On The Run” sandwich housing the number “Black Sheep,” and later, Keller Williams came out for “Kentucky Mandolin.” To end Yonder’s set, the legendary Larry Keel took the stage for the final three songs of their set—”All The Time” through “Pockets” back into “All The Time”—and their cover-heavy encore of Lou Reed’s “Walk On The Wild Side” and Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Holland 1945.”

Yonder Mountain String Band will be returning to the Northwest String Summit this summer, running from July 13th to 16th, and again are scheduled to perform three sets across the weekend. They will be joined by Greensky Bluegrass, Del McCoury Band, JJ Grey & Mofro, Elephant Revival, Fruition, Todd Snider & Great American Taxi, and Turkuaz to name a few other acts with whom they share the bill.
