Banjo player Danny Barnes is currently on the road with Yonder Mountain String Band. As previously reported, in addition to his own opening set, Barnes has been sitting in with Yonder each night. This past Saturday he performed with Yonder at New York’s Nokia Theater and took the stage with the group for “Pike County Breakdown” and “Going Where They Do Not Know My Name” during the group’s second set. Railroad Earth treated fans to an extended opening set and also lent the group fiddler Time Carbone for covers of “Harder They Come” and “Shady Grove.”

Yonder Mountain will perform at Milwaukee, WI’s The Rave this Wednesday, while Railroad Earth will play shows at Boston, MA’s The Paradise on Friday and Saturday.
