Colorado-based jam band Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, blending influences of rock and roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues into an organic whole that has enchanted audiences for more than 25 years. Leftover Salmon performs at the Kent Stage on Tuesday, Oct. 17. Formed in Boulder, Colo. in 1989, Leftover Salmon has headlined shows and festivals from coast to coast, released nine albums, and maintained a vibrant voice in the music world. The evolution of the band’s music is influenced by co-founders Drew Emmitt (mandolin/vocals) and Vince Herman‘s (guitar/vocals) keen musical instincts, and follows a musical path started when they first formed the group along with the late banjo player Mark Vann. The addition of new band members over the years has nurtured an unmistakable evolution and freshness in Leftover Salmon’s sound, and has added an edge to the long-lasting power of the band’s music. Fueled by the rhythm section of long time bassist Greg Garrison, drummer Alwyn Robinson, and Salmon’s newest member, keyboardist Erik Deustch, the band is currently enjoying a creative renaissance. The front line trio of Emmitt, Herman and banjo player Andy Thorn are continually challenged and pushed in new directions as the band collectively searches for new spaces and sounds within their extensive catalog of songs. The show begins at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7 p.m. General admission seats for “An Evening with Leftover Salmon" are $25 advance, $30 day of show. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m. at www.kentstage.com, where the full calendar of concerts can be accessed. Tickets also available by phone at 877-987-6487.
