Roots of the Dead

The Roots of the Grateful Dead at the Port Washington Library

Jerry Garcia, founder and “spiritual adviser” of the psychedelic rock band The Grateful Dead, was an avid listener and student of American traditional music. He and his bandmates were well versed in American blues and bluegrass as well as the folk traditions of the British Isles. Like the Grateful Dead, The Homegrown String Band has drunk deeply from the well of blues, ballads, and breakdowns that have helped to shape the sounds of American popular music. At 7:30 pm on Friday, May 9th, 2014, the band will be presenting a program featuring their own original interpretations of some of the traditional and early commercial material that was featured in the repertoire of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead.
