Yim Yames, Daniel Martin Moore, and Ben Sollee

That'd be Monsters of Folk and My Morning Jacket main man Jim James, sans band members but now with added S.E.O. spelling quirks, joining two fellow Kentucky natives: Sub Pop songwriter Daniel Martin Moore and former Sparrow Quartet cellist Ben Sollee, who recorded Dear Companion together late last year with ol' Yimbo acting as producer. The tour aims to heighten public awareness of wildly destructive "mountaintop removal" coal mining practices in Appalachia (a subject C-ville's own Trees On Fire also know a thing or two about), with a portion of the proceeds from sales of both tickets and albums going to Appalachian Voices, one of the environmental non-profit organizations fighting the good fight.
