Bruce Hornsby’s Yoshi’s run in 1998

Soon after the release of Spirit Trail,  Bruce Hornsby embarked on a 20 show run in Yoshi’s , Oakland, CA. We have every one of those shows for free download.

Most of these are pristine soundboard copies, recorded with Bruce’s permission directly from the audio souYoshi's Oakland CArce at Yoshi’s. 

Choose from each of these shows to download them in MP3 format. We’ve listed the setlists and details of special guests below.

Please note: they were originally posted on this website in 2014. The references to fund-raising were for our charity project that we were running at the time. We are no longer asking for donations.

Enjoy the shows!
