Leftover Salmon
Leftover Salmon
mixand who was unafraid to stir inanynumber of highly combustible styles into their ever evolving sound, to their role as a pioneer of the modern jamband scene, totheir current status as elder-statesmen of the scene who cast a huge influential shadow over every festival they play, LeftoverSalmon has been a crucial link in keeping alive the traditional music of the past while at the same time pushing that sound forward with their own weirdly, unique style. As Leftover Salmon nears their 30th year, their inspiring story is set tobe told in a brand new book, Leftover Salmon:Thirty Years of Festival! that will be released February 2019byRowman & Littlefield. In this book, critically acclaimed author ofBluegrass in Baltimore: The Hard Drivin’ Sound & It’s Legacy, Tim Newby presents an intimate portrait of Leftover Salmon through the personal recollections of its band members, family, friends, former band-mates, managers, and the countless musicians they have influenced. Leftover Salmon: Thirty Years of Festival! is a thorough guide covering a thirty-year journey of a truly remarkable band.Itis a tale of friendships and losses, musical discoveries and Wild West adventures, and the brethren they surround themselves with who fortify Salmon’s unique voice. Their story isoneof tragedy and rebirth, of unimaginable highs and crushing
lows, of friendships, of music, but most importantly itis the story of a special bandand those that have lived through it all to create, inspire, and have everlasting fun. Heading into their fourth decade Leftover Salmon isshowing no signs of slowing down as they are coming off the release of their most recent album, Something Higher (released in2018) which hasbeen universally hailed asoneof the band’s finest releases. Something Higher shows how even uponpreparing to enter their fourth decade Leftover Salmon is proving it possible to recreate themselves without changing who they are. The bandnow features a line-up that hasbeen together longer than any other in Salmon history andisoneof the strongest the legendary bandhas ever assembled. Built around the core offounding members Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman, the bandisnow powered by banjo-wiz Andy Thorn, and driven by the steady rhythm section of bassist Greg Garrison, drummer Alwyn Robinson, and keyboardist Erik Deutsch. The new line-upiscontinuing the long, storied history of Salmon which found them first emerging from the progressive bluegrass world and coming ofageasone the original jam bands, before rising to become architects of what has become known as Jamgrass and helping tocreate a landscape where bands schooled in the traditional rules of bluegrass can break free of those bonds through nontraditional instrumentation andan innate ability to push songs innewpsychedelic directions live. Salmon is a band who over their thirty-year career has never stood still; they are constantly changing, evolving, and inspiring. If someone wanted to understand what
Americana music is they could dono better than togoto a Leftover Salmon show, where they effortlessly glide from a bluegrass number born on the front porch, to the down-and-dirty Cajun swamps with a stop on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, tothe hallowed halls of the Ryman in Nashville, before firing oneupin the mountains of Colorado.
