YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND’S Setlist 12/29/13

I finally found the setlist for Yonder Mountain String Band’s third night at the Boulder Theatre. They performed this show with Jerry Douglas joining them on dobro and vocals.

12/29/13  YONDER MOUNTAIN STRING BAND @ The Boulder Theatre

I could only find one source for this setlist , so I had nothing to compare it with. Hopefully this is pretty close. I will try to figure out what the instrumental in the encore was and will change it here when I do. I hope their other setlists are easier to locate. Check back for YMSB and Umphrey’s McGee setlists from 12/30/13.
