Special to The PREVIEW
Architects of what is now popularly known as jamgrass, Leftover Salmon has been added to the Community Concert Hall at Fort Lewis College season. Tickets for the Jan. 26, 2018, show, “An Evening with Leftover Salmon,” are on sale now.
Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, digging deep into the well that supplies its influences: rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues.
Leftover Salmon is a direct descendant of bands such as Little Feat, New Grass Revival, Grateful Dead and The Band, born of the heart and soul of America itself, playing music that reflects the sounds emanating from the Appalachian hills, the streets of New Orleans, the clubs of Chicago, the plains of Texas and the mountains of Colorado.
Over the band’s 25-plus years, Leftover Salmon’s sound has grown and evolved while staying true to the roots and guiding spirit of the band’s founding members, mandolinist Drew Emmitt and guitarist Vince Herman.
Tickets for An Evening with Leftover Salmon ($35-$45) are available online at www.durangoconcerts.com, by calling 247-7657 or by visiting the ticket office inside the Durango Welcome Center at 8th Street and Main Avenue in downtown Durango.
