The Grass is Dead Concert is Wednesday, May 1

The Grass is Dead play Grateful Dead tunes 
bluegrass style as well as traditional and 
original bluegrass and folk tunes.
On Wednesday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m., the Grass is Dead will play and sing their bluegrass arrangements of Grateful Dead songs as well as traditional and original bluegrass music in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Performing in Wellsboro will be Billy Gilmore on banjo, mandolin, fiddle, guitar, dobro and pedal steel; Jared Wornack on dobro; David Freeman on mandolin; Brian Drysdale on drums and percussion and guest artist Steve Belcher on bass. They all sing.

This South Florida band has been rearranging Grateful Dead songs in their own bluegrass style since the ensemble was first formed in 1998. It is their way of paying homage to the music and cultural legacy of America's first folk rock band, one of the most influential groups in the last 54 years. The catalogue of Grateful Dead music is a gold mine for string bands and storytellers and the Grass is Dead has established itself as the premiere purveyors of this rich tradition of Americana music.

The Grateful Dead was founded in 1965 in California's San Francisco Bay Area amid the rise of the counterculture of the 1960s. The consummate jam band's final live show with Jerry Garcia was on July 9, 1995 at Chicago's Soldier Field. It marked the end of the band's 30-year run. Frontman Garcia died the following month at the age of 53.

Because this is a BYOB event, concertgoers are encouraged to bring their own favorite beverages and snacks. Tickets are $20 and free for children 12 and under accompanied by an adult. To reserve a table and for tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.
