Jacob Jolliff Rockwood Residency

image1 (5).jpeg

I had so much fun playing the last show of my twenties at Rockwood! So much fun that I decided to book a residency—one show a decade for the next 30 years, taking place during the last hours of my 30s, 40s, and 50s. This seemed like a super cool idea—I would gradually build momentum over the three shows, keeping people in a frenzy of anticipation for more than a quarter century. Unfortunately, all the players I wanted for the last show of my 50s had conflicting gigs already, and Rockwood didn’t have the date available for the last hour of my 40s, so I decided to rebook the shows for the next three months, starting in November! Each show will feature a cast of totally sick players, and most likely a tasteful little poster by Mike Robinson like this one! Thanks Mike!

The Contingents Featuring Jacob Jolliff + Greg Garrison and Alwyn Robinson from Leftover Salmon

The Contingents are a brand new project featuring Alwyn Robinson and Greg Garrison of Leftover Salmon, and Jacob Jolliff of Yonder Mountain String Band. Though the three of them have very different backgrounds, they have a mutual affinity for music in a wide variety of styles. 

The prodigious drummer, Alwyn Robinson, grew up in Marshall, Texas before making the move to Boulder, CO for grad school. He's recorded and shared the stage with countless musical giants including Jeff Coffin, Ron Miles, Oteil Burbridge, and Phil Lesh to name a few.  While living in the front range he connected with virtuoso bassist, Greg Garrison, who was already a member of Leftover Salmon. Originally from Chicago, Greg has collaborated with legends such as Bill Frisell, Chris Thile, Joe Lovano, and Lyle Lovett. Jacob Jolliff is a national champion mandolinist who was raised in Newberg, OR. He relocated to Boston after he received a full scholarship to The Berklee College of Music. He started touring with YMSB in 2014.  These three musicians have played together in different contexts over the years, but this is their debut tour as a trio. You can expect intense and high energy music spanning many genres from bluegrass to jazz to pop.
