first_imgFans in Louisville, KY were looking at a very difficult decision next Thursday, September 15th, as both Greensky Bluegrass and Leftover Salmon were performing at different venues in the city on the same night. Though both bands are routed through unique fall tours, the intersection certainly posed some dilemmas for fans who have been loyal followers of both artists.Fortunately, these two bands have deep ties, and even recently performed on the same bill at Red Rocks Amphitheatre earlier this year. The two groups have lovingly decided to merge their two performances, keeping the jamgrass flowing at the Mercury Ballroom for this special billing. Cereus Bright will support both bands.According to the GSBG announcement, all tickets purchased for Leftover Salmon will be honored at the Mercury, and refunds will be issued to all those who can no longer make it. With both Greensky and Salmon on the same bill, Louisville bluegrass fans have no excuse to miss this show! More information can be found here.last_img read more
