The Jacob Jolliff Band is the next generation of bluegrass supergroups, led by one of the country’s premier contemporary bluegrass mandolinists.
Before joining Yonder Mountain String Band in 2015, Jacob Jolliff founded the beloved New England roots band Joy Kills Sorrow while attending Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship. The band logged three records, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles of worldwide touring. Named the National Mandolin Championship winner in 2012, Jolliff has since been a fixture of the national bluegrass community, and has collaborated and shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Chris Thile, and David Grisman to name a few. When Joy Kills Sorrow disbanded in 2014, Jolliff got the call to join jamgrass giant Yonder Mountain String Band.
The Jacob Jolliff Band features a rotating cast of some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country. The collective includes Alex Hargreaves (Grand Master Fiddle Champion, Turtle Island Quartet), Bobby Hawk (Abigail Washburn, Clint Black, Vince Giordano), Stash Wyslouch (The Stash! Band, Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, The Deadly Gentlemen), Myles Sloniker (Ron Miles, Jeff Coffin, Nick Cave), Jake Stargell (Missy Raines, Sierra Hull, Mountain Heart, Bearfoot), Mike Barnett (Kentucky Thunder, Deadly Gentlemen), and others.
Jacob Jolliff continues to tour extensively with Yonder Mountain String Band year round, assembling his namesake band when his schedule permits, for rare, not to be missed performances.
