The Cabin Fever Tour kicks off January 31 in St. Louis and will wind its way around the South and Midwest for several weeks.

Joining the jam band for a smattering of gigs (January 31, and February 1, 8 and 13) is bluegrass troubadour Larry Keel. Then the Reeltime Travelers hop on for a few shows near the end of the tour, February 25-31. Longtime Yonder Mountain friend Tim O’Brien will perform a special full set for the Madison, Wis., crowd.

Prior to the tour, Yonder Mountain will treat their hometown fans to a couple end-of-year shows. The big New Year’s Eve concert will take place at Denver’s Paramount Theatre – a first time performance in that venue for the band.

Meanwhile, on the album front, Yonder Mountain have released the second in their Mountain Tracks series. The Vol. 2 disc features tracks from the band’s 2001 run of the Northwest.
