The Jacob Jolliff Band

Jacob Jolliff is one of the country’s premier contemporary mandolinists. In 2012, he won the National Mandolin Championship in Winfield, KS. A fixture of the national bluegrass community, he has shared the stage with Darol Anger, Sam Bush, Ronnie McCoury, Jerry Douglas, and David Grisman, to name a few. In 2014, he joined the progressive bluegrass giant, Yonder Mountain String Band. Jolliff’s new solo project, The Jacob Jolliff Band, is a next generation bluegrass supergroup. The ensemble features some of the most virtuosic and innovative young pickers in the country. The band features his long-time partner-in-crime, Alex Hargreaves, a winner of the Grand Masters Fiddle Championship, on fiddle, Stash Wyslouch on guitar and Jeff Picker on drums.
