Younder Mountain String Band is hopping on a hot caravan to tide acoustic music fans over during those cold post-holiday months.
The Cabin Fever Tour kicks off January 29th in Tulsa, Okla., and swings through the South in February and beyond, joined on selected dates by the Del McCoury Band.
So far, five shows with both bands are confirmed. YMSB and the International Bluegrass Music Association Entertainer of the Year will alternate headlining slots on the dates they share.
Bluegrass fans who caught both groups at last year’s installment of the annual String Summit know they’re in for a night of pickin’ and grinnin’ like no other.
The Del McCoury Band will keep rollin’ on with a solid schedule through June and additional dates stretching into October.
Yonder Mountain String Band is booked for much of June, including a four-day slot at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. The group recently released its first two-disc live package, Mountain Tracks Vol. 3, featuring cuts from the band’s 2003 Kinfolk Celebration.
