Load remaining images Last night marked an exciting performance at the Portsmouth Pavilion, with both Yonder Mountain String Band and The String Cheese Incident sharing a billing. While String Cheese has been known to dabble in a variety of genres, there’s no denying that bluegrass is at their hearts, and a choice collaborations with the folks of Yonder during last night’s show only strengthened those grassy roots.YMSB opened up the show with a great set, letting their newest members – Allie Kral and Jacob Jolliff – shine during the performance. Cheese then took the stage for their two-set performance, as keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth proclaimed “Never miss a Sunday Show!” He wasn’t kidding. The first set was highlighted by a cover of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” into the Cheese tune “Beautiful.”After a short break, the big moment of the night came at the start of the second set. The two bands teamed up for a full band collaboration, playing three songs: the Stanley Brothers tune, “Think Of What You’ve Done” into Bill Monroe’s “Big Mon,” as well as the traditional folk ballad “Blackberry Blossom.”SCI is gearing up for a 3-night stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre this coming weekend (July 14th-16th), where they will also be inducted into the Red Rocks Hall of Fame.Check out some videos from the collaboration, courtesy of ricgrass on YouTube:Think Of What You’ve Done/Big MonBlackberry BlossomImages have been provided by Sam Shinault Photography, and a full gallery, as well as the band’s setlist, can be seen below.

Should Ghana’s Baba Abdul Rahman go to Chelsea, it would allow Jose Mourinho to use Branislav Ivanovic in the centre of defence when needed next season and move Cesar Azpilicueta out to the right.But German Bundesliga side Augsburg have said they would rather keep rising Ghana international and enjoy winning games with him than sell him for a fee under their 20m euro valuation.The Blues have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old left-back, but are believed to have offered 18m euros for his services, a development that does not interest Augsburg chairman Jonas Hoffman.”We do not need the Baba millions,” he told Bild. “We have a good, solid team here. Augsburg win with a beer in my hand than when we have more money in the bank account.”Rahman is wanted by Chelsea as a replacement for Brazilian star Filipe Luis who is set to return to Spanish side Atletico Madrid after one underwhelming season at Stamford Bridge. –Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmith.
