Vince Herman
Things are just more fun when Vince Herman is around, and since helping co-found Leftover Salmon over a quarter century ago, Leftover Salmon shows have always been the most fun.Herman moved to Boulder, CO from Morgantown, West Virginia, where he was attending West Virginia University, in 1985. On his first night in town, he met his future bandmate Drew Emmitt at a show for Emmitt’s group at the time, the Left Hand String Band.The two struck up an immediate friendship. For a short time after moving to Boulder, Herman joined The Left Hand String Band, marking the first time thetwo would play together in a band. Herman soon left The Left Hand String Bandto pursue his own musical vision. He formed the Salmon Heads, a Cajun-jug bandthat tried to wrangle all of Herman’s disparate musical influences, Cajun, Calypso, Ska, and bluegrass into a coherent musical statement. His vision was fully realized on New Year’s Eve 1989 when the Salmon Heads and The Left Hand String Band united forces for a show. The show was a rousing success and the energycreated on stage that evening was something special, and a new band, Leftover Salmon, was born. It is a band that truly matched Herman’s vision and allowedhim to showcase his wildly, theatrical stage anticsand skills.Nearly thirty-years later those antics and skills are still on display at every show they play.

Madeleine Froncek (Ley Line)
Madeleine Froncek is multi-instrumentalist living in Austin, Texas. She co-writes songs and plays upright bass with the female world-folk quartet, Ley Line. She also plays banjo and bass with her bluegrass trio, Steel Betty. Madeleine’s mission statement as a musician is to deepen her understanding of self and others through harmony, dissonance and creative expression. Her compositions use storytelling and imagery to transport listeners on adventures through vivid and tranquil dreamscapes.

Andrew Sturtz
With a mixture of Soul, Folk, and Pop, Andrew Sturtz garners comparisons to Amos Lee, Martin Sexton, and others. For over 15 years, Andrew has performed throughout many venues within the Michigan and the Chicago area. Though, after taking a break from live performance in 2014, Andrew is picking up where he left off in his new home of Colorado. Reinvigorated by a vibrant music community in Boulder, CO, an album is in the works for Summer of 2017. “Sturtz has a laid back, effortless vibe to his music, while also having the raw talent that does not require any clever tricks to deliver a smooth yet vibrant performance. – Compose Yourself Magazine
