"Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass"! It just rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? And it flowed effortlessly when the jamband Leftover Salmon brought their self-described style to packed venues, most notably in their home state of Colorado, and in our Southeastern Appalachian corner of the country. This album from 1992 was their recording debut for their fans, having first formed in 1989 when Vince Herman's band the Salmon Heads asked some members of the Left Hand String Band (mandolinist Drew Emmitt and the late banjo pioneer Mark Vann) to sit in. Join us for this 21-year-old flashback, as we get ready to welcome the band back to our area for a show in Black Mountain Sunday the 26th!
