Yonder Mountain Announces New Lineup


As of April 23, 2014, Jeff Austin is no longer a member of Yonder Mountain String Band, citing creative differences and conflicting career goals.

Austin, a founding member of the American progressive bluegrass band from Colorado, Yonder Mountain String Band, has decided to pursue a career on his own. 

The following message was sent out by the band.

Collectively, after long, heartfelt discussions, we've all decided to move forth with a newly formed line-up due to varying career goals and creative pursuits. As of today, all future YMSB shows will be performed with Adam Aijala (guitar, vocals), Ben Kaufmann (bass, vocals), and David Johnston (banjo, vocals). We will welcome exciting special guests throughout the rest of the year and we look forward to a new permanent line-up in 2015. YMSB fully supports Jeff Austin and his emerging solo career.

Yonder Mountain String Band will perform all scheduled dates throughout 2014 with the new line up and special guests. Jeff Austin will be announcing more dates for his solo endeavors in the coming months. The band wants the fans to know that this decision did not come easily, and we'll certainly keep all of our fans up to date with the new Yonder band-member line-up information.
