      EVENT DETAILS
      Canal Street String Band

      With three voices, fifty-five strings and a pair of cow bones, The Canal Street String Band puts a brand-new shine on some seriously fun old American music. In this show, these stellar multi-instrumentalists will explore the roots that inspired seminal jam-band The Grateful Dead.


      Jerry Garcia grew up listening to field recordings, jazz, traditional folk songs, bluegrass, and ancient Child ballads, first getting together with Bob Weir and Pigpen NOT to start a rock-and-roll band, but to play jug band music.


      As The Grateful Dead, they learned songs from itinerant street musicians, covered blues legends and country stars, and packed a gumbo of musical styles into their own canon of beloved original songs. The Dead exposed generations of music fans to the nooks, crannies, branches and offshoots of American roots music like perhaps no other act of their size and influence.

      Cost: 10.00 to 24.00
