Leftover Salmon to headline Park City Friday
First Published Feb 25 2013 01:49 pm • Last Updated Feb 25 2013 01:53 pm

"Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass" is one of the least favorite baby names according to the Social Security Administration, but it’s the best description for a band’s sound I have ever heard (at least since The Chicago Daily Tribune used the word "jazz" for the first documented time in 1915).

Vince Herman, singer, guitarist and mandolin player of Leftover Salmon, said in a phone interview that he loves playing in the winter in Colorado and Utah because "people are willing to get crazy in ski towns."

The jam band hadn’t released a new album since its hiatus in 2004, but 2012 saw the release of "Aquatic Hitchhiker," with a title that sounds exactly what a Leftover Salmon album should be called.

It is the first album that banjo player Andy Thorn contributed to, and while Thorn will never be able to fill the shoes of the band’s beloved, late banjo player Mark Vann, Thorn is "such a great player and fun to hang out with." Even more important, Herman said, "The first gig [with Thorn] was haunting. It felt like playing with Mark."

Herman admitted that the "band limped along for a few years" after Vann’s death in 2002, but "playing with Andy makes it feel so right."
