Yonder Mountain String Band were part of a massive bill at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison this Saturday, and the bluegrass staples welcomed a number of members of their fellow acts on the lineup throughout their set.
After mixing in classic covers like the Grateful Dead’s “Fire on the Mountain,” Waylon Jennings’ “I’ve Always Been Crazy” and Dolly Parton’s Jolene earlier in their set, Yonder Mountain welcomed Jerry Douglas, who had previously played with the Earls of Leicester, to lend some dobro to their own “Angel.”
For their two-part encore, Yonder were first joined by Douglas and members of The Infamous Stringdusters for “Sideshow Blues,” before returning to the Red Rocks stage again for a second encore, a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” featuring Douglas, the Stringdusters and the members of Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, closing out the evening with nearly all the musicians who had played throughout the day.
See the full setlist below, along with video of some of the collaborations and the Stringdusters’ cover of Phish’s Possum from earlier in the night.
