Few bands stick around for 30 years. Even fewer bands leave a legacy that marks them as a truly special, once-in-lifetime type band. And no band has done all that and had as much fun as Leftover Salmon. Since their earliest days as a forward thinking, progressive bluegrass band who had the guts to add drums to the mix and who were unafraid to stir in any number of highly combustible styles into their ever-evolving sound, to their role as pioneers of the modern jamband scene, to their current status as influential elder-statesmen of that scene — casting a huge shadow over every festival they play — Leftover Salmon has been a crucial link in keeping the traditional music of the past alive, simultaneously pushing that sound forward with their own weirdly unique style.

The band marked their 30-year anniversary in 2019 with Leftover Salmon: Thirty Years of Festival!, 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. It is 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 is one of tragedy and rebirth, of unimaginable highs and crushing lows, of friendships, of music, but most importantly it is the story of a special band and those that have lived through it all to create, inspire, and have everlasting fun.

In 2021, the band returned to Compass Records for their release Brand New Good Old Days. The band now features a line-up that has been together longer than any other in Salmon history and is one of the strongest the legendary group has ever assembled. Built around the core of founding members Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman, the band is now powered by banjo wiz Andy Thorn and driven by the steady rhythm section of bassist Greg Garrison and drummer Alwyn Robinson. This line-up is continuing the long, storied history of Salmon, which first found them emerging from the progressive bluegrass world and coming of age as one the original jam bands, before rising to become architects of what has become known as Jamgrass. Leftover Salmon were pivotal in creating a musical climate where bands schooled in the traditional rules of bluegrass could break free of those bonds, using nontraditional instrumentation and tapping into their innate ability to push songs in new psychedelic directions live.

Salmon is a band that has never stood still; they are constantly changing, evolving, and inspiring. If someone wanted to understand what Americana music is, they could do no better than to go to a Leftover Salmon show for a musical tour, with the band taking them to Appalachia for an old-time bluegrass song, stopping at Bourbon Street in New Orleans for a swampy Cajun-influenced number, to the hallowed halls of the Ryman in Nashville, before returning to the mountains of Colorado to fire one up.

VINCE HERMAN
Things are just more fun when Vince Herman is around, and since helping co-found Leftover Salmon over a quarter century ago, Leftover Salmon shows have always been the most fun. Herman moved to Boulder, CO from Morgantown, West Virginia, where he was attending West Virginia University, in 1985. On his first night in town, he met his future bandmate Drew Emmitt at a show for Emmitt’s group at the time, the Left Hand String Band.

The two struck up an immediate friendship. For a short time after moving to Boulder, Herman joined The Left Hand String Band, marking the first time the two would play together in a band. Herman soon left The Left Hand String Band to pursue his own musical vision. He formed the Salmon Heads, a Cajun-jug band that tried to wrangle all of Herman’s disparate musical influences, Cajun, Calypso, Ska, and bluegrass into a coherent musical statement. His vision was fully realized on New Year’s Eve 1989 when the Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band united forces for a show.

The show was a rousing success and the energy created on stage that evening was something special, and a new band, Leftover Salmon, was born. It is a band that truly matched Herman’s vision and allowed him to showcase his wildly, theatrical stage antics and skills. Nearly thirty-years later those antics and skills are still on display at every show they play.

DREW EMMITT
If the Mount Rushmore of progressive bluegrass mandolin players is ever built, Drew Emmitt’s image will be on it alongside fellow legends like Sam Bush and David Grisman, who he channels every time he steps on stage. Emmitt got his start at an early age in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado taking lessons from Hot Rize’s Tim O’Brien. He soon joined the progressive bluegrass group The Left Hand String Band, and remade the band through his desire to combine rock ‘n’ roll and bluegrass.

This combination provide an exciting and explosive sound and led to The Left Hand String Band becoming one of the most popular bands in the region. They regularly played some of the most prestigious bluegrass festivals over the years including Telluride and RockyGrass. Campground jams and occasional sit-ins with Vince Herman’s Salmon Head’s at those festivals, eventually led to a merging of the Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band for a 1989 New Year’s Eve show and the birth of Leftover Salmon. Since that New Year’s Eve show, multi-instrumentalist Emmitt has been the perfect foil for Herman, serving as a steadying influence for the band, acting as its primary songwriter, and forging a musical partnership entering its third decade.

GREG GARRISON
Dr. Greg Garrison – as he is often referred to onstage due to his Doctor of Music Arts degree in jazz studies – is the epitome of what a bass player should be; steady, reliable, and rock solid. The uniquely skilled bassist is equally adept at a wide range of styles including rock, bluegrass, and jazz. Since graduating from the University of Illinois and moving to Colorado to continue his schooling, those talents have been on display in a number of settings, including playing with funk provocateurs The Motet, jazz trumpeter Ron Miles, bluegrass legends Sam Bush, Del McCoury and Vassar Clements, jazz guitarists Bill Frisell and John Scofield, and being a founding member of the critically acclaimed Punch Brothers.

This ability to play across genres has proven advantageous when playing with Leftover Salmon and their wide-ranging influences, as he can easily glide from style to style while holding down the bottom end. Garrison is the longest tenured member of the band (after founders Emmitt and Herman) serving as the engine that powers Leftover Salmon since joining in 2000.

ANDY THORN
Since being drafted from the Emmitt-Nershi Band to join Leftover Salmon, Andy Thorn’s powerful, driving, banjo picking has helped carry the band to new heights. Despite his young age, the North Carolina native brings a wealth of experience to the banjo seat in Leftover Salmon. Thorn first began playing banjo at age 12 after purchasing one at his neighbor's yard sale and has not stopped picking since. After high school Thorn moved onto the University of North Carolina where he earned a degree in Jazz Guitar and played in seminal local band Big Fat Gap, which has a long history of graduating players into bigger bands.

From there he moved to Colorado and joined The Broke Mountain Bluegrass Band, which included Anders Beck from Greensky Bluegrass and Travis Book from The Infamous Stringdusters in its lineup. The band was only around for a brief time, but they won the 2003 RockyGrass Bluegrass Festival Band Contest. That same year Thorn won the RockyGrass banjo contest. Despite the wave of attention that followed, the band soon broke up as they all begin to move onto other bands. Thorn moved back to the East Coast and joined flatpicking legend Larry Keel’s band. His time with Keel was brief as he was then recruited to fill the empty banjo spot in the Emmitt-Nershi Band, which led to him to officially joining Leftover Salmon in 2011.

ALWYN ROBINSON
For a band like Leftover Salmon who effortlessly moves from bluegrass to rock to a Cajun-tinged, high, octane party, where the tempos are demanding and can change in a moment, a dexterous, drummer who can comfortably transition from style to style with those ever changing tempos is a must. For Leftover Salmon, Alwyn Robinson is that drummer.

His background growing up in Texas, that found him playing drums in rock and country bands since middle school, through high school which saw him become an award winning percussionist, and continuing with his college years at Texas Tech that saw him sharpen his jazz and improvisational skills to a fine edge, have all served to be the perfect background for what he would find when he joined Leftover Salmon.

A move to Colorado to work on an advanced degree in music, was followed by an introduction to Leftover Salmon bassist Greg Garrison. Garrison recommended Robinson for Salmon’s vacant drum seat, which he filled in 2013, playing his first show with the band at Delfest that year.

About the band:



There is an absence of light, before the light. A simple bare stage in the waning gloaming, and I can see Darrell make his way to a lone microphone. He is here to shine that light on matters of the heart─the grit, grease, gristle, and most importantly, the marrow beneath the breastbone.
And what is the path that shapes us as we go along, those true defining moments without which we would be hollow versions of our current selves? For Darrell, it was coming from a musical family with a father who had him smitten with guitars by the age of 4, alongside a brother who played Jerry Reed style as well. From there, things only ramped up with literature and poetry endeavors while a student at Tufts University, along with playing his way through life. This would never change.
When those hands of his make their way across the strings and fretboard, there is palpable loss of air in the theater, as the listeners, our feet and bodies firmly on the ground, watch his sonic wings take him upwards in flight, and realize we are as along for the ride through the skies as he is. Inevitably, to feel this being channeled, privy to this shared physical space, is both heady and inspiring. Small are the number of things in life which allow us to be so deeply immersed and mesmerized by a moment that we are unable to even be aware of the rest of the world humming and whirring away outside. This is Darrell Scott terra firma, where he takes us, with these otherworldly gifts.
The wordsmithing and craftsmanship of the songs that become timeless─although a lost cause for many who try to write them─ is far from a dying art, thanks to Darrell’s work. He is more so existing creatively at levels we just don’t fathom anymore.
.He mines and cultivates the everyday moment, taking the rote, menial, mundane, and allowing it to be surreal, ever poignant, and candidly honest, lilting, blooming, and resonating. The words he fosters allow us to make sense of the world, what is at stake here, and our place in it. And ultimately, Darrell knows the sole truth of life is that love is all that matters, that we don’t always get it right, but that’s the instinctive and requisite circuitous allure of things, why we forever chase it, and why it is held sacred.
2017 and 2018 Darrell opened for and performing with the Zac Brown Band, these days find him roaming his Tennessee wilderness acreage hiking along the small river, playing music, or sharing each day with the woman he loves, also an artist in her own right. He often leads songwriting workshops to help people tell their own truths with their stories, and is as busy as always writing, producing, performing, and just plain fully immersing himself at the hips in life.
If one really opens their eyes and sees how incomparably varied in surreal depth and breadth the musical territory he is both delving into and setting the high water mark with, it leaves the rest in a bewildered wash of gravel road dust and fading taillights. For good luck finding that two-legged soul who walks around among us who can keep up with him─ain't gonna happen.

Caleb Caudle At B Chord Brewing Company

Free Show!

Music Starts at 4PM

Caleb Caudle Turns Fear Of The Unknown Into His Most Meticulously Crafted Album, Forsythia, Out October 7th Via Soundly Music
Recorded at Cash Cabin and produced by John Carter Cash, Caudle is backed on the new album by Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Dennis Crouch, Fred Eltringham, Carlene Carter, and Elizabeth Cook
Listen to the masterful character study “Crazy Wayne” here
Caudle also announces fall tour in support of Forsythia, including his NPR Mountain Stage
debut

Due to circumstances beyond his control, Caleb Caudle saw his upcoming album Forsythia as possibly his final album. Somehow, he turned that fear of the unknown into his most meticulous and expertly crafted collection of songs to date. Out October 7th via Soundly Music, Forsythia is a portrait of Caudle’s truest self, of the artist at his most solitary and reflective. Thematically, it meets anticipation for the unknown future with nostalgia for the past and reconciles both with meditation in the present. The album, recorded at Cash Cabin outside Nashville, TN and produced by John Carter Cash, features acclaimed session players Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Dennis Crouch and Fred Eltringham, and the vocal talents of Carlene Carter, Elizabeth Cook and Sarah Peasall McGuffey.
Forsythia is a collection of 10 songs that form a manifesto of Caudle’s life philosophy. It’s calming, reconnecting and soothing and moves at a natural, unhurried pace. “I Don’t Fit In” and “Red Bank Road” provide biographical context, while songs like “Crazy Wayne” and “Tears of Savannah” step into the shoes of off-kilter characters. “The Gates,” co-written with John Carter Cash, is a foreboding folk ballad exemplary of Caudle’s ability to evoke the past with a modern touch of polish. “Shattered Glass” and “Through My Hands” emotionally process bad circumstances, dark tendencies and negative habits. The album’s title track does what all the best country songs do– describes a specific moment vividly, accessibly and with the slightest touch of melancholy. “Bright as a forsythia bush in bloom / when the light’s right / early April / late afternoon,” Caudle sings. The album finds beauty in simpler times and, though it explores a lifetime of lessons, maintains a childlike sense of hope and contentment with life as it is.
After the COVID pandemic culled plans for a lengthy tour in support of his acclaimed 2020 album Better Hurry Up, Caudle and his wife moved from Nashville back to their home state of North Carolina. For the first time in a long time, Caudle had nothing but time. He spent most of his time in the woods– hiking, observing, thinking. He considered many things he hadn’t before, like where he wanted to eventually be in life and at the end of his career. His attunement to nature opened him to channel the muse, penning his simplest desires into song. On these hikes, and in his songwriting, oak trees represented memories of pocket knives and toy slingshots bought from the general store on the rural road he grew up on; and blooming, bright yellow forsythia bushes became omens, much like their use as a symbol for “anticipation” in literature and folklore.
“The natural world has always shown up in my lyrics but with these songs I felt that get magnified,” says Caudle. “The beauty and force of it all became sacred to me. I felt unplugged from the hustle and free to pay close attention to the details and it completely changed my approach to life.”
As uncertainty for how to earn a living as a musician in a world with no live music loomed, Caudle decided to make what he thought could be his last album. He took John Carter Cash up on his offer, made over a fishing trip, to produce his next record. The carefully selected group of collaborators gathered within the holy walls of Cash Cabin, surrounded by instruments, photos and artifacts from the family. The perfect alchemy of self-reflection, powerful songs and support from a room full of Nashville’s top musicians gave Caudle the confidence to record an album he would be happy with, even if he never had a chance to make one again. On this record, outsider influences come into play nearly as much as his foundational knowledge of traditional Appalachian folk and other music history. Simplistic arrangements– in which Caudle was the only guitarist– built a framework for space that is filled intentionally so that the songs themselves can be heard and appreciated without an overcrowding of instrumentation.
“I knew I had to bring the best 10 songs I could possibly write,” Caudle says. “I had been singing into my phone for a year and a half, not playing music with anyone. The first time I played with other musicians again was with Jerry, Sam, Dennis and Fred. I wish I could bottle that feeling up and sell it. It was pure magic and exactly what I needed.”

B Chord Brewing Company34266 Williams Gap RoadRound Hill, VA20141 Map

Time Sawyer at B Chord
Music Starts at 8PM
$10 Cover at door.

Time Sawyer is interested in “real people and real songs” and that’s just what the listener finds in their music – a sense of realness. Time Sawyer blends a grassroots feel with heart-felt lyrics to put on an entertaining show. From introspective ballads to high-energy crowd-pleasers, Time Sawyer’s songs land in that rootsy sweet spot where folk, alt-country, and rock gather for a good time.
The Folk-Rock band’s name reflects the pull between the past and the future. The character Tom Sawyer evokes the rural background and love of home that the band shares. Time is a muse for songwriting; it’s the thread that runs through life, bringing new experiences and giving us a sense of urgency, while still connecting us with our past.
Time Sawyer has performed on the stages of some of the Southeast’s most iconic festivals, including Merlefest, Floydfest, Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Albino Skunk Music Festival, Carolina in the Fall and IBMA’s Bluegrass First Class. They’ve shared bills with Langhorne Slim, Eric Krasno, John Moreland, Steep Canyon Rangers, The Wood Brothers, Susto, and many more.

In March 2020 the band started a variety livestream called ‘Sam on Sunday’. The show originated out of necessity, but quickly connecting with friends, family, and fans each week became just as important. The livestream reached over 150,000 folks over two seasons and kept the band creative and connected with a diverse pool of artists as new guests were highlighted each episode.

The memorable lyrics and strong melodies result in songs that will stay in your head long after the music stops. Time Sawyer continues to develop a loyal and growing fan base. Whether they’re playing in an intimate listening room or a large outdoor festival, their goal is to forge a face-to-face connection with the audience so that they become friends who happen to be fans.
