One of the latest and increasingly popular "Newgrass" groups on the scene, Colorado's Yonder Mountain String Band, will bring their speedy, diverse Bluegrass stylings into the BarrelHouse for what should be a thoroughly entertaining mid-week concert. The group have emerged in just a few short years, proving to be a favorite at Bluegrass festivals as well as earning a strong following on the Jam Band circuit. While purist probably scoff at anything not strictly traditional, the YMSB's talent could easily sway them. Somewhat remarkably the band is known for turning bar crowds into a spinning sauna of dancers — and this without the rhythmic support of a drummer.

At the BarrelHouse on Wednesday.
