Formed in Boulder, CO in 1989, Leftover Salmon has remained one of the preeminent staples of the jam band scene for over two decades. The band has gone through some roster changes over the years but is usually comprised of six core members, often with additional musicians onstage during live performances. Like many acts in the jam band genre, Leftover Salmon employs elements of country, rock and bluegrass into its music, but is particularly notable for its regular inclusion of world influences, particularly those of Cajun music and zydeco. The result is a lively and highly-skilled blend of banjo picking, guitars, fiddle, drums, mandolin and keyboards. Leftover Salmon went on hiatus for a couple of years in 2005, but has since remained active on the festival circuit.
