Editor's Note: Yonder Mountain recently released its first album in almost two years. We previewed some of the music last December.

Progressive bluegrass group Yonder Mountain String Band has a New Year's tradition,  playing multiple nights of concerts at the Boulder Theater.

This year, the band will perform Dec. 30 and 31. If you go, you might hear some new music such as the song "Alison" that you can watch the music video above.

The Boulder quintet is at work on a new album, which is expected to be released in 2017. 

Guitarist and vocalist Adam Aijala and Dave Johnston, who plays the banjo and sings, previewed some new songs with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.

Music artists that Aijala and Johnston can't get enough of right now:

  • Banjo player and singer Danny Barnes and his old band The Bad Livers
