Leftover Salmon will be returning to Denver for their perennial Thanksgiving weekend throwdown, harvest style. Friday will find the boys at Ophelia’s playing the music of Neil Young. Saturday Salmon swims over to The Fillmore Auditorium where they will welcome special guests Los Lobos.
Looking back over the past 25 years of rootsy, string-based music, the impact of Leftover Salmon is impossible to deny. Formed in Boulder at the end of 1989, the Colorado slamgrass pioneers took their form of aggressive bluegrass to rock and roll bars at a time when it wasn’t so common, helping Salmon become a pillar of the jam band scene and unwitting architects of the jamgrass genre. Today, Leftover Salmon is: Vince Herman (vocals, acoustic guitar, washboard); Drew Emmitt (vocals, acoustic and electric mandolin, electric guitar, fiddle); Andy Thorn (vocals, acoustic and electric banjo); Greg Garrison (vocals, acoustic and electric bass); Alwyn Robinson(drums); Erik Deutsch (keyboard).
