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).

Mandolin Orange is a Chapel Hill, NC-based duo led by songwriter Andrew Marlin and instrumentalist Emily Frantz, who ornament lyric- and harmony-focused tunes with acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle and mandolin. The duo’s understated instrumentation draws on bluegrass and rock-and-roll alike, keeping Marlin’s dark lyrical themes at the forefront of their folk-country sound. Together they deliver a sound that’s uniquely their own yet satisfyingly familiar, and were recently recognized by Rosanne Cash to be “very exciting young people making great music”. Since releasing their debut full length ‘Quiet Little Room’ in May 2010, the duo has shared bills with Chatham County Line, the Steep Canyon Rangers and Abigail Washburn, and has performed at notable festivals such as Shakori Hills Grassroots, Beaufort Music Festival, and Albino Skunk Festival (SC).

Mandolin Orange is currently touring throughout the southeast in advance of their second full-length release, and working on its finishing touches in the meantime. On some tour dates the duo is joined by their recently added rhythm section, made up of Jeff Crawford on bass (formerly of Roman Candle, SpencerAcuff) and James Wallace on drums and organ (formerly of Max Indian, The Old Ceremony). The majority of the forthcoming album was recorded in a cabin in Franklin, NC with Jeff and James in December 2010, while the rest was completed at Crawford’s Arbor Ridge Studios in Chapel Hill. The album is not yet named, and is set to release in early fall of 2011.

The duo’s first album ‘Quiet Little Room’ released in May 2010 and was self-produced, recorded and engineered by Marlin and Frantz at Rubber Room Studios in Chapel Hill. The intimate and sparse style of the tracks met critical acclaim in several reviews. Independent Weekly’s Rick Cornell states that “all across the record is the sound of voices and instruments in the dark, finding light.” In a review for swampland.com, James Clementine confidently likens the album’s harmonies to those of Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris. Muzzle of Bees noted that their “focus moves from the instrumentation to the melody and ethos of songs … a little bit grassy, a little bit country-folk, a little bit something else.” Both North Carolina natives, Marlin’s rural upbringing and Frantz’s roots in bluegrass fiddle and harmony serve as the basis for the duo’s more explorative style. Quiet Little Room reflects the influence of traditional music on their original material, which edges into southern gothic with poignant, sometimes foreboding lyrics centered on themes of the natural world.

Mandolin Orange’s current work retains the intimacy, open space and focus established in their first album, but explores new musical territories through both Marlin’s songwriting and the addition of a full rhythm section. The band’s evolving sound reflects the eclectic musical environment of Chapel Hill, and their engaging performances are packing houses throughout North Carolina and beyond. With festivals booked for summer and Fall 2011 and an appetite for expansive touring, the second album release is sure to take this lyrical Americana act into new territory.

Aaron Wood is thrilled to announce the release of his new self-titled album at Highland Brewing on Saturday, April 2nd. The album is result of the first successful kickstarter campaign in Asheville and has been a year and a half in the making.

Hopping around town for his album release and showing off his many styles is fitting for Aaron Wood who leaves a great legacy in the Southern region. As a professional musician, Aaron was a pivotal member of The Blue Rags, with whom he had success with national media coverage (MTV) and international tours. He has also recorded and preformed with a slew of New Orleans and Western North Carolinas finest musicians in what was a blending of New Orleans Jazz and Bluegrass. The Blue Brass sessions featured members of the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Larry Keel, Trombone Shorty and many others.

One look at the long list of artists he has shared the stage with exemplifies his diversity, not to mention respect from his musical peers. From Jimmy Martin to Leon Russel, R.L. Burnside to Warren Haynes, Sara Evans to Carlos Santana, Aaron has played and learned from some of those who have helped shaped music into what it is today.

Aaron delivers his music with all the soul, power, and energy that have made him renowned as a musicians musician. Roots legend, Corey Harris calls him “a master”, and Donald Harrison, New Orleans Jazz great, calls him “his musical brother.”  We hope that you can join us for the the album release of Aaron Wood!

The Mast perform their debut piece ‘Figure Eights’ at The Magnetic Field on March 27. ‘Figure Eights’ explores one woman’s quest to steer the cavalry of her own imagination through songs, electronic soundscapes & monologues


“Haale’s warm, supple voice unfurled like a curlicue of smoke”-New York Times
“Brilliantly produced rhythms”- Popmatters
www.TheMastMusic.com

Asheville, NC- The Mast is the latest project by the Brooklyn-based vocalist/poet Haale and percussionist/producer Matt Kilmer. Described as, “One of the most expansive duos out there, The Mast has to be experienced live,” by the BeaconPass.com. They are set to debut their performance piece Figure Eights at the Magnetic Field in Asheville, NC on Sunday, March 27, 2011. The performance is $15 and starts at 8pm.

“An extraordinarily powerful vocalist. The emotions expressed in Haale’s songs are as warm and inviting as the sounds…” exclaims Jim Derogatis with the Chicago Sun Times. Through songs, electronic soundscapes, and monologues, Figure Eights explores one woman’s quest to steer the cavalry of her own imagination from a preoccupation with doom and disaster, to something brighter, the golden nectar, tucked inside the crimson bell of a flower, for instance. Existence and the spectrum of possibility! Where are we putting our attention? Within a world soaked with images of violence, there still exists the hummingbird, flapping its wings 80 times per second in the shape of figure eights, hovering at the mouth of a flower to energize itself off the sweet elixir. Master attendant to and perpetuator of beauty–a creature, she decides, worth emulating. The piece is a series of snapshots, starting with her childhood spent swimming in seas of anxiety, and following her through a fascinating transformation. A celebration of alchemy and the mind’s triumphant malleability.

Before they launched The Mast in 2010, Haale and Matt Kilmer were writing, performing, and touring together for 3 years under Haale’s name. Starting in 2007, upon the release of the EPs, ‘Paratrooper’ and ‘Morning,’ they toured across the country, in Canada, and Europe playing such venues as the Bonnaroo festival, the David Byrne-curated series at Carnegie Hall, the Hillside Festival, Celebrate Brooklyn, Mimi Festival in France, and Preservation Hall in New Orleans. In March 2008, they released the full-length album ‘No Ceiling’ which the Boston Globe called ‘one of the year’s most memorable releases.’

The Mast will release their debut album, Wild Poppies, in the spring of 2011. Music can be heard on www.TheMastMusic.com and  www.haale.com.

Recording ‘Wild Poppies’ from upcoming album to be released spring 2011:

In Persian, Mast means “intoxicated with existence, in a blissful state of wonder and awe,” which is exactly how Figure Eights will leave you feeling in this not-to-be-missed performance.

SHOW CANCELLATION: Vince Herman’s mother and father are both gravely ill and he will be unable to perform. Please keep Vince, Colin, Silas and their family in your prayers this holiday season. Bobby Miller and the Virginia DareDevils will be performing in their honor for the MoDaddy’s show this Thursday Dec. 2nd in Asheville.

What’s the ideal way to survive those rugged snowy Colorado high mountain winters? If your last name is Herman, then the answer is you PLAY!

The Herman Clan is proud to announce their debut East Coast Tour! Hailing from the music infused—and snow clad—mountains of Colorado, they bring with them a flavor of life and Bluegrass in Nederland, CO. Not quite traditional, not quite modern, the trio recently opened for Tony Trischka at the historic Stage Stop Tavern.

The Herman Clan is a family band led by the one and only Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon & Great American Taxi. Vince sings and plays the mandolin and guitar, always doing what comes naturally to him: delivering unforgettable performances filled with witty humor, smooth guitar licks, and amazing improvised lyrics while pairing this all with amazingly strong song-writing and appreciation for traditional American music.

Teaming up with his sons Silas and Colin on guitar and upright bass, respectively, The Herman Clan delivers their own unique and tightly knit interpretation of traditional bluegrass, Americana and beyond. Silas—though young—is already making waves in the Colorado music scene. With close to ten thousand people looking on, Silas recently shredded the main stage at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and at Red Rocks with LOS—how many 16 year olds can say that!? Colin rounds the trio out on stand-up bass, providing a solid steady foundation for the bands’ engaging picking adventures.

Together the Herman’s deliver a musical flavor all their own , fresh, inspired and all in the family! Come check ‘em out and see one of the best new sounds emerging from the high country of Colorado!

THIS JUST IN: joining the Herman Clan for this run are:  on Banjo  Jason Flournoy, on B3 Hammond ~ Dave McCracken (Donna the Buffalo), on Mandolin ~ Bobby Miller (Virginia DareDevils), and on Fiddle ~ Zebulon Bowles (Emmit Nershi Band)!
