DEAD GRASS | STARTING AT 4:30 PM
Dead Grass is multi-instrumentalist Matt Turk and Grammy award winner C Lanzbom joined forces to form Deadgrass, a string band adventure through Jerry Garcia’s musical world. Bassist Dave Richards, banjo player Russell Gottlieb and fiddler Michael Barrett Donovan complete this fine group of seasoned pros exploring the life works of Jerry Garcia on the instruments that first inspired him.

Deadgrass celebrates and interprets the music of Jerry Garcia, drawing from Old & in the Way, JGB, Grisman/Garcia, Jerry’s Jug Band days and The Grateful Dead.

ERYN | STARTING AT 3:00 PM
Eryn has developed a reputation as one of the premier up and coming voices on the scene today.

Originally from MD and now living in NJ, Eryn’s style is heavily influenced by the musical traditions of the south.

Her respect for the traditions of Jazz, Blues and Country fused with her modern pop style and brought together by Eryn’s incredible vocal ability has been said to give even the most hardened critic chills.
