Bluegrass is music steeped in tradition, but over the past decade and a half Yonder Mountain String Band has spearheaded a renegade movement to rewrite the definition of the genre. Alongside other neo-bluegrass friends, such as Leftover Salmon, Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, and The Travelin' McCourys, YMSB has thoroughly revitalized and contemporized bluegrass, introducing the sound to countless new fans. Paste magazine wrote, "The Yonder Mountain boys have found a formula that works: take rootsy bluegrass influences, add in some rock 'n' roll, and seek out an adventurous audience." The result is always a high-energy musical party.
