It’s a night of genre-busting bluegrass when Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, and Yonder Mountain String Band bring their contagious improvisational jamming to Wolf Trap. Railroad Earth tops the trifecta with fan favorites “Like a Buddha,” “Mighty River,” “Bird in a House,” and more. Leftover Salmon pioneered the jamgrass sound with their marathon live shows and songs like “Lovin’ In My Baby’s Eyes” and “Midnight Blues.” Grammy-nominated Yonder Mountain String Band blends rock, alternative, psychedelic, and bluegrass into a package that has captivated both festivals and stadiums. This will be an unpredictable—and unforgettable—evening of music.
