premier mandolin players in the acoustic music universe, playing hot licks to ac- company the biggest names in that field, including Bela Fleck, Del McCoury, Earl Scruggs and plenty of others. And one can’t discuss Grisman – who will be appearing at the Tower Theatre
on Sunday night along with his quintet – without mentioning Jerry Garcia, the Dawg’s good friend and frequent collaborator. Grisman famously played on the Grateful Dead’s American Beauty, forever linking him to the legendary band and bringing Deadheads into the fold of acoustic music. Grisman’s take on bluegrass is so unique that it earned its own classification,
“Dawg Music,” which is a style that’s hardly foreign to street corner jams and bluegrass festivals in these parts. If you’re a bluegrass fan, you should be at this show, but you should also be thanking Grisman for bringing the style to a new wave of fans. – Mike Bookey
