When that ensemble went on hiatus In 2014, he joined up with progressive bluegrass luminaries, Yonder Mountain String Band. He performed with YMSB until the end of 2019, releasing two albums with them. Currently the mandolinist is focusing on his own group, The Jacob Jolliff Band, which includes some of the most virtuosic young acoustic musicians in the world.
