Wake the Dead
For eleven years Wake the Dead has been wowing concert and festival audiences and further afield with their three acclaimed CDs with the band's brilliant blend of the songs of the Grateful Dead and traditional Celtic music performed by a high-octane octet by some of Northern Califorinia's most popular Celtic, jazz and acoustic players. Songs originally popularized by the Grateful Dead have been retooled in unexpected ways, seamlessly woven with Celtic jigs, reels and airs and performed all-acoustic but with true rock and roll sizzle. As 'Amazon.com' noted, Wake the Dead have been 'converting Deadheads into folkies and 'heads into folkies. Shimmering renditions of Dead music fused with Celtic beauty. The music is beautiful, masterfully performed with Dead-hommage vocal style, great traditional Celtic instrumentation. The Dead songs fit this genre very well. I think any fan of the Dead will appreciate these renditions of their music. I know Jerry would've dug them.' Wake the Dead features singer, fiddler and fretman Danny Carnahan, singer and guitarist Sylvia Herold, guitarist and mandolinist Paul Kotapish, harpist Maureen Brennan, uilleann piper and whistle player Kevin Carr, bassist Cindy Browne, percussionist and multi-instrumentalist Joe Craven and percussionist Brian Rice. As an expression of cultural joy, you can't top an Irish wake. An what is a wake but a celebration, a toast of appreciation, an expression of love and an excuse for a smashing good party. So kick back, join the part and wake the dead. For more, visit www.wakethedead.org.
