The Grass Is Greener

While stretching the boundaries of old-timey bluegrass, Yonder Mountain String Band has reached a peak.

"Once again," he adds, "for us, it's the timing of it all. If we had started a month later than we did, it wouldn't have worked. This weird timing thing keeps happening with us, and even if we don't think we necessarily deserve it, these opportunities keep showing up."

Kaufmann says he and his mates are thankful for their blessings, even if they've had little time to savor them in the rush to keep up with the demands of their improving status. But when he catches his breath to assess his good fortune, he likes what he sees.

The Yonder Mountain String Band is sittin' on top of the world.

"When I was in high school," Kaufmann says, "I thought I'd like to be in a band for my job. It was an intangible dream. Ten years later, I am in a band, it's supporting me in every way, the musicians I'm playing with are inspiring people, and it's very fulfilling. I guess you can't ask for anything more."
