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, Jacob Jolliff founded beloved New England roots band Joy Kills Sorrow, while attending Berklee School of Music on a full scholarship. In 2012, Jolliff had the distinctive honor of being named the National Mandolin Championship winner. A fixture of the national bluegrass community, he 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 Yonder Mountain String Band.

The Jacob Jollif Band is quartet featuing a rotating cast of some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country, including Alex Hargreaves, on fiddle. Considered one of best improvising violinists in the world, Hargreaves is the winner of The Grand Masters Fiddle Championship and a regular member of Chris Thile’s Live From Here band. Other members of the JJB include Stash Wyslouch on guitar (The Deadly Gentleman, The Stash! Band, and Molsky's Mountain Drifters) and bassists Jeff Picker and Max Johnson (Sarah Jarosz, Ricky Skaggs, and Jeff Austin Band). The specific band lineup changes and is subject to availability.
