The Jacob Jolliff Band
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. The band logged three records, hundreds of shows, and thousands of miles of worldwide touring. 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 progressive bluegrass giant Yonder Mountain String Band.

The Jacob Jolliff Band features some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country. Jolliff continues to tour extensively with Yonder Mountain String Band year round, assembling his namesake band when his relentless touring schedules permit, for rare, not to to be missed performances.
