The dynamic lead singer and mandolin player with the popular jamband Leftover Salmon, Drew Emmitt is a true renaissance man on musical instruments. Emmitt’s superlative storytelling and versatile vocal abilities are incomparable, and his mandolin, guitar, fiddle, banjo, harmonica, flute and electric guitar skills make him a string man to be reckoned with.

In his solo career, Emmitt relishes the chance to record with some of the giants with whom he’s shared festival stages. After touring as the Emmitt-Nershi band with Billy Nershi of the String Cheese Incident for the past few years and making several reunion appearances with Leftover Salmon, Emmitt’s solo work is rejuvenated and once again taking the contemporary, live gig, fresh every-time approach to bluegrass music.
