Summer is in the air, and with that Leftover Salmon is pleased to announce three special shows at some of the most cherished and unique venues Colorado has to offer. On June 10th & 11th, Leftover Salmon performs a two night run in the Poudre Canyon at the newly owned and operated Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO. On June 12th the festivities travel to The New State Bridge Amphitheatre in Bond, CO to honor & revisit a celebrated tradition. This intimate venue on the Colorado River holds a considerable amount of history in the Colorado music scene and was the site of many memorable LOS shows in the group’s early years. A devastating fire took the property in 2007, but the revered venue will return this summer. Leftover Salmon is honored to be performing the Grand Re-Opening Party at The New State Bridge Amphitheatre. The amphitheatre officially opens its doors to the public on May 28th, with Campout for a Cause, complete details at statebridge.com. Fan on sale dates for all shows is Saturday April 2nd. Public on sale for Mishawaka Amphitheatre is April 13th, and public on-sale for State Bridge is Monday April 4th.
The sound of Colorado’s legendary Leftover Salmon is unmistakable: fluid, loose-limbed, and simultaneously rootsy and daring. Fusing an unrivaled improvisational fervor to a dizzying combination of bluegrass, Cajun, funk, Southern rock, boogie, Caribbean, Latin, and jazz influences, Leftover Salmon has earned a legion of diehard fans, critical accolades, and a reputation as one of the most exciting, engaging concert experiences to ever hit the road.
In August 2010, the group released an exciting new DVD, commemorating their 20 year tenure. On December 30th and 31st, 2009, Leftover Salmon and Riffactory partnered to produce a live DVD of these two exemplary sold-out performances at the historic Boulder Theatre in Boulder, CO. Filmed in HD, this DVD celebrates the band’s full circle musical journey which started on December 31st, 1989 when The Salmon Heads and Left Hand String Band decided to join together as one for a New Year’s show at the Eldorado Café in Crested Butte, CO. There was a blue moon out that night, and it was back out for the 2009 shows as well, spurring the title of the new DVD – ‘Twice in a Blue Moon’. Included with the DVD, is an mp3 download of the DVD’s audio as well as exclusive bonus tracks.
Through the course of the 20+ years as a band, Leftover Salmon has performed music with such contemporaries as Sam Bush, Bela Fleck, David Grisman, Jerry Douglas, Del McCoury, Peter Rowan, Pete Wernick, Col. Bruce Hampton, Oteil Burbridge, Bill Payne, Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, Pete Sears, Todd Park Mohr, Tony Furtado, Theresa Anderson, along with members of the The String Cheese Incident, Widespread Panic, Yonder Mountain String Band and dozens of additional artists.
