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)!
