The Jacob Jolliff Band
The Jacob Jolliff Band
The Jacob Jolliff Band is the next generation of bluegrass supergroups, led by one of the country's premier contemporary bluegrass mandolinists.

Before joining Yonder Mountain String Band, Jacob Jolliff founded beloved New England roots band Joy Kills Sorrow, while attending Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship. The band logged three records, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles of worldwide touring. In 2012, Jolliff had the distinctive honor of being named the National Mandolin Championship winner. A fixture of the national bluegrass community, he has collaborated and shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Chris Thile, and David Grisman to name a few. When Joy Kills Sorrow disbanded in 2014, Jolliff got the call to join progressive bluegrass giant Yonder Mountain String Band.

The ensemble features some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country. Jacob Jolliff continues to tour extensively with Yonder Mountain String Band year round, assembling his namesake band when his relentless touring schedules permit, for rare, not to to be missed performances.
The Brother Brothers - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Brother Brothers
Identical twin brothers Adam and David Moss are a musical duo unlike most others. The sound of The Brother Brothers is striking and undeniably captivating. Often leaning towards the darker, moody elements of Appalachian folk, klezmer, and bluegrass traditions, their songs are laden with near perfect sibling harmonies or unison singing, compelling writing, and imaginative arrangements. With individual storied careers in the americana scene under their belts, the brothers are finally teaming up to bring their experiences together.

Over the last year, The Brother Brothers have toured with Sarah Jarosz and Lake Street Dive, and supported Shakey Graves, Big Thief, and The Felice Brothers, among others. They have taped sessions for Daytrotter, Audiotree, and Music City Roots, as well as performed at The Kennedy Center, Folk Alliance, and the Americana Music Conference. Their debut EP "Tugboats" was released in 2017 to critical acclaim
