A little over a week ago, five-member progressive string band Horseshoes and Hand Grenades released their brand-new album, Miles In Blue, and just last night, they performed the album in its entirety via a special, two-hour live-streamed set.

On Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday November 25, A Harvest Celebration with Vince Herman & Friends will air on Instrumenthead Live at 8pm EST and again at 8pm PST. Vince says, “Come and join us, have a little music with Mimi Naja, Kyle Tuttle, the Davisson Brothers, and Kylie Frey. We are gonna have a harvest celebration Thanksgiving style 2020 with pickin’ and singin’ and dancin’ and movin,’... It's gonna be fun!”

In celebration of today's release of On The Road: A Tribute to John Hartford, a project benefitting MusiCares, please join Vince Herman from Leftover Salmon and The High Hawks at 4:20pm Mountain High Time for a special performance live on the LoHi Records Facebook page. They will be honoring the lasting legacy of John Hartford by performing some of his beloved songs and bringing more attention to this release to help artists in need during these challenging times. Good times, great music great cause. No cover charge and BYOW!

Acclaimed bluegrass guitarist Billy Strings invites his fans to listen in on his conversations.

On The Line with Billy Strings is a “fly on the wall" invitation to chats between Billy and his friends. From musicians and actors, tattooists and mechanics, to music industry insiders and even his mom. OTL w/ BS will feature myriad guests talking about any-and-everything that comes up.

With the house only about two-thirds full, likely due to attendee coronavirus precautions, ALO and Leftover Salmon nevertheless persisted in front of an enthusiastic crowd, many of whose outfits celebrated the show’s artsy moniker, The Fins, Fur & Feathers Fancy Formal. It was the band’s first-ever appearance at the famed Warfield Theatre in San Francisco.

Vince Herman came from a musical family, inspired by his grandfather that would sing on holidays when he had a drink or two. He began guitar lessons in the third grade from a local accordion player in a polka band. By the time he reached high school, he had found bluegrass while sipping moonshine and listening to Bill Monroe sing Walls of Time. By 1980, Vince found the Grateful Dead and we are all better for that magic event. Leftover Salmon celebrated its 30th anniversary under the Big Top on New Years' Eve 2019.

Historically, Legend is born out of greatness but rarely does greatness follow legend and the saga of The High Hawks is one such lore that has only just begun. The namesake is said to be inspired by a journey to a sacred space by a lone traveler who summits a mountainous apex whereupon, prepared to take part in the herbal sacrament, is met by a bird-of-prey on soaring wing who relieves this seeker of his cerebral transport, leaving him alone to reflect on the arcane and to derive meaning and his role in this experience.

First coming together on a late October evening when Vince Herman wandered into the Walrus Saloon in Boulder, Colorado, after being enticed by a sign reading “Bluegrass Music Here Tonight,” and met Drew Emmitt, whose band was playing that night, the pair have been reshaping the musical landscape ever since.

Festivaaaaal! Everybody knows that rally cry. Do you know why it became the go-to rally cry for Leftover Salmon? The origin of Festivaaaal! was wondering Telluride’s campsites, bonding over Star Trek’s Red Hour episode. It’s not just an exciting statement of your location. Festivaaaal! has become synonymous with Leftover Salmon’s infectious enthusiasm and the way they can fit on any bill, in any location, with any other bands. Festival! is a shout of pure bliss while reveling in the good times listening to one of the most enduring bands of all times, Leftover Salmon.
