For fans of bluegrass, David Grisman needs no introduction. With a career that spans over 40 years, the renowned mandolinist and composer has been there and back again, and then taken a few more laps just for good measure. Stylistically Grisman’s playing is all over the map, owing as much to jazz as it does to the psychedelic sounds of a late 60’s San Francisco – he even coined the term “Dawg” music to describe the multicultural mish mash. He has collaborated with everyone from greats like Stephane Grapelli to, most famously, hippy luminary Jerry Garcia to produce music that urges the listener to move as much as it asks them to think about what they are hearing.
Joining Grisman on stage to kick of their tour will be friend and fellow music legend John Sebastian. A former founder/member of The Lovin’ Spoonful who delivered hits like “Do You Believe In Magic” and “Daydream,” Beginning with the 2007 album Satisfied , Sebastian has spent the later years of his career exploring the annals of acoustic folk along with Grisman as both musicians seek to produce music that transcends the genres that they pull so much inspiration from.
