Wild blue Yonder

Just back after the Yonder Mountain Sring Band set. A lot of excitement over a very good band. It was my first time and they mostly lived up to expectations. The highlight was probably when Drew Emmitt joined Jeff Austin on stage for a double mandolin attack.

"Without a band called Leftover Salmon, we wouldn't be here," he enthused. Austin also warmly thanked the Telluride audience for giving us a home for the last seven years, and vowed to return every year. The audience ate up the compliment and a happy buzz reflected back toward the stage and seemed to fill the bowl.

Right now, the Troubador contest winner, Nels Andrews from Brooklyn, NY, is taking his 15-minute turn on the main stage.
