Leftover Salmon just announced a show September 15 at the Ryman Auditorium in celebration of the 15th anniversary of their recording of The Nashville Sessions, and tickets are on sale now. This one-of-a-kind reunion performance will feature special guests John Bell, Sam Bush, Jeff Coffin, John Cowan, Jeff Hanna, Taj Mahal, Todd Park Mohr, Bill Payne, Randy Scruggs, Jo-el Sonnier, Sally Van Meter, and Reese Wynans.
Leftover Salmon built a name for themselves as a talented jam band recording multiple albums and consistently touring throughout the 1990s. At the culmination of the 90s The Nashville Sessions producer, Randy Scruggs, brought in heavy hitter guest artists like Waylon Jennings, Lucinda Williams, and Bela Fleck to the initial record. Read on below for more from the band and info on the upcoming show.
The Nashville Sessions recording represents a highlight in the band’s long-lived career. Vince Herman, guitarist, vocalist, and washboardist, shared some thoughts saying, “Recording the Nashville sessions was like a musical fantasy island for us. We’d have Earl Scruggs come in the morning, Taj Mahal in the afternoon and Waylon Jennings the next day. We were loving it. It’s still dreamlike thinking about it years later. I sure treasure having had the chance to play with such iconic figures, especially those who have passed on, including our brother Mark Vann. I’m going to savor the chance to make music with the great cast of characters assembled at the Ryman that night. Life is short. Art is long.”
