Leftover Salmon’s Thanksgiving Weekend @ The Boulder Theater
Friday & Saturday, November 23-24th, 2012
8pm doors, $27.50 per day, $50 for 2-nights (limited)
2032 14th St. Boulder, CO 80302

Leftover Salmon is happy to announce a two night run at the Boulder Theater on Friday and Saturday, November 23rd – 24th to celebrate Thanksgiving weekend! NPR’s Mountain Stage heralded Colorado’s Leftover Salmon as “one of the most beloved acts on America’s summer-festival circuit” as they’ve returned from an eight year hiatus touring with their new album Aquatic Hitchhiker [released May 22 on LoS Records]. Exploring new new sonic territory, AOL’s The Boot listed Aquatic Hitchhiker as one of the best Americana albums of this year.

Members of the Leftover Salmon fan-club can purchase advance tickets for the Thanksgiving shows on Friday, September 7, 2012 at 10am MST through http://leftovertickets.jambasetickets.com/events/248491. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, September 14th at 10am MST through www.bouldertheater.com and at the Boulder Theater box office.

There ain’t no place they’d rather be letting loose for Thanksgiving weekend than with friends, fans, and family right back where it all started back in 1989 when they emerged on the scene as one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock & roll bars, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jam grass genre.

Leftover Salmon kicked off the 2012 season by hosting an epic block party in downtown Denver, releasing a behind-the-scenes documentary “Salmonlandia,” touring relentlessly and scoring a spot as Discovery Channel’s first-ever house band on “After the Catch,” the post-show special for the Emmy-winning series “The Deadliest Catch.”

Now they are gearing up for their Fall tour which kicks off October 2nd and sees several familiar stops along the way, some of which the band has not visited in over a decade. The tour rolls through the Northeast, Southeast & Midwest with festival stops at The Festy Experience & Yonder Mountain String Band’s Harvest Music Festival at Mulberry Mountain and String & Sol in Tulum, Mexico.

Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Today, Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin); Drew Emmitt (vocals, mandolin, acoustic and electric guitar, mandola, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo, National guitar); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass, acoustic guitar); Jose Martinez (drums, percussion).

Original, and from the soul, Larry Keel, an acoustic Americana flatpicker, delivers inventive bluegrass, country, jam rock, roots reggae and indie-alt while always honoring those that introduced Bluegrass and Mountain Music. When Larry and his brother Gary Keel team up, as they occasionally do for live shows and two albums in the past six years, expect lightning-fast flatpicking!

The Keel Brothers music is deeply rooted in their father Jim Keel’s generation and his musical tastes, drawing on selections from the earliest Stanley Brothers, Hank Williams, Doc and Merle Watson, Classic Country Gentlemen, fiddle tunes and flatpicking guitar tunes and old ballads that were always a part of the weekly “jam sessions” of the Keels’ large circle of Bluegrass picker-friends. It was Larry’s older brother Gary (older by 12 years) who taught him to play the guitar at age 7, and bought him his first instrument.

Dehlia Low formed in late 2007 as part of Asheville, North Carolina’s roots music renaissance. Singers Anya Hinkle (from Blacksburg, VA on fiddle) and Stacy Claude (from Atlanta, GA on guitar) pulled together a group of talented pickers from the region: Aaron Ballance on Dobro (Winston-Salem, NC), Bryan Clendenin on mandolin (Hurricane, WV) and Greg Stiglets on bass (Jackson, MS).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The group has taken off like a skyrocket…and deservedly so: in a musical world that doesn’t always treasure creativity, Dehlia Low has staked out a good piece of ground all its own.” ~ Nashville Scene, Jon Weisberger

“Dehlia Low is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the musical world for some time to come!” ~ Music News Nasheville, Chuck Dauphin

Dehlia Low is a band riding high on a wave of musical accomplishment and heartfelt performance. Fans of Americana, bluegrass, or just good country-tinged music would do well to seek them out” ~ Pop Matters, David Maine

“…relying on the warm tones of acoustic guitar, mandolin, upright bass, slide guitar, and not to mention fiddle thumpin’, strummin’ and pickin’ underneath honeysuckle vocal harmonies — the Asheville, N.C., quintet seems like it has rolled straight off a mountainside and right onto a wraparound wooden porch in some summer-grass valley.” ~ Style Weekly, Mike Hilleary

“Dehlia Low’s “Ravens & Crows” is carefully crafted to lure traditional, country, bluegrass and Americana fans. They are generally appealing to all of these genres without alienating anyone, which is hard to do.” ~ Boone Mountain Times, Ashley Wilson

Dehlia Low CD release parties:

The Get Down ~ West Asheville
Friday, November 5th, 2010

The Garage ~ Winston Salem, NC
Friday, November 12th, 2010
w/ local openers Porch Dog Revival

The Evening Muse ~ Charlotte, NC

w/ Belleville Outfit

Emerging out of Asheville, North Carolina’s roots renaissance, Dehlia Low echoes the sounds of early country with a strong bluegrass flavor, crafting a fresh originality that feels like home.

Since the release of their second studio album “Tellico” in 2009, Dehlia Low has traveled across the U.S. in support of the album, including appearances at Merlefest, Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, Appalachian Uprising, Pickathon, Jammin’ at Hippie Jack’s, Durango Meltdown and Bristol Rhythm & Roots. Dehlia Low’s most recent release “Dehlia Low – Liveshowcases the group’s exceptional songwriting talent and outstanding vocal and instrumental performances recorded during the 2010 season at notable venues in the southeast including the Grey Eagle, Down Home and Mockingbird.

Dehlia Low’s had great success with their first two albums; both being listed within the top 20 of 100 releases in 2008 and 2009 on WNCW. They are also featured on a Live MerleFest compilation for 2010 for the Bluegrass trust fund.

“…one of those kinds of bands that I just really fall in love with. They’re called Dehlia Low and at the bare bones, they’re a string band, but…in a way string bands used to be when there wasn’t such a genre splint of what country music was and what bluegrass music was and what blues music was. It’s where those points converge for me. They’re primarily writing their own material, very strong material, and they’re one of those bands that you’re going to start hearing a lot more of.” ~ Iaan Hughes, No Depression
