“Painted Mandolin has hit on an amazing combination of symbiosis playing old Jerry Garcia tunes, traditionals, and the good ol’ Grateful Dead. They get their audiences up and moving!” Jay Saber, The Wheel Company
With jamming instrumentals, grooving energy, and vocals shared by all, Painted Mandolin explores the acoustic side of Jerry Garcia’s musical interests, from his early jug band days to the bluegrass of Old and In the Way, through the Grateful Dead’s “Reckoning” period to Jerry’s acoustic band and the Garcia/Grisman project in the early 90s. Painted Mandolin covers both the acoustic songs of Garcia’s and the songs he was known for covering including tunes by Miles Davis, B.B. King, Ralph Stanley and others.
This musical experience features Joe Craven (Mandolin/Violin/Percussion), a former member of the Garcia/Grisman Band from 1991-1994 and a member of The David Grisman Quintet from 1989-2004; Matt Hartle (Lead Guitar) from Spirit of 76, The China Cats, and Shady Groove; Larry Graff (Rhythm Guitar) from Slugs N’ Roses and the Banana Slug String Band; and Roger Sideman (Bass) from The China Cats.
There will be dancing space available!
