Leftover Salmon will perform Thursday at Cox Capitol Theatre.

SUSAN J WEIAND — Special to The Telegraph

Fans of Widespread Panic, Phish or local band Moonshine Still, not to mention Little Feat, have a lot to look forward to in Leftover Salmon’s show Thursday at the Cox Capitol Theatre.

“Formed in Boulder, Colorado, in 1989, the group was one of the first bluegrass bands to add drums and tour rock ’n’ roll bars,” according to a news release. Little Feat’s Bill Payne will be joining Leftover Salmon for this show.

“It’s fun to see someone with such history in music join up with a younger group,” said Roger Riddle, marketing manager for the Moonhanger Group, which manages the theater. “He’s lively. When he gets in front of the mic, he’s singing and going up and down the keyboard with his fingers. It’s exciting to see someone get down like that.”

The Black Lillies, from Knoxville, Tennessee, will open the show. Playing a blend of country, roots, rock and blues, the band has “played the Grand Ole Opry 15 times,” the release said.

“They are an up-and-coming young band, and the last time they played here, everyone loved them,” Riddle said.
