Yonder Mountain String Band and TourGigs are reuniting to bring you a Live Stream this Saturday!


Yonder Mountain String Band and TourGigs are happy to announce we will be teaming up again to deliver fans a Live Stream of this Saturday’s show live from Stubb’s in Austin, TX. The show kicks off around 9:00PM CST, and the stream can be purchased for $12.99 (price includes replay and 7 day On Demand access – see below).

Anyone who purchases this show gets access to the replay as well as access to the On Demand. The Replay, available almost immediately after the show is over, is a looping replay of the show with no viewer controlled playback. The On Demand, available sometime the day after the show, allows you to start, pause, fast forward etc. the entire show. The On Demand access will remain available until April 9th. In addition, the Chat Room has now been optimized better for mobile, so you can have a better 2 screen experience of watching the stream on your television or computer while participating in the chat on your mobile device.

“Award winning flat picker Larry Keel and his rock solid, in the pocket bass playing wife, Jenny Keel, make up two thirds of this super fun trio I started in 2004. With two albums recorded together, the handful of gigs we play a year turn into acoustic picking parties. We vowed from the beginning that we wouldn’t do it often so that when we did, it would be special and it is.” –Keller Williams
