Folk Roots of The Grateful Dead with Canal Street String Band

Share this event:


The Grateful Dead exposed generations of music fans to the nooks, crannies, branches and offshoots of American roots music like perhaps no other band of their size and influence. 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.

Buffalo's Canal Street String Band, dubbed "performing artists of the highest professional caliber" (NYS Presenters Network), dives into the deep well of American music that inspired the Grateful Dead  and reveals fascinating stories behind the music.

With fiddle, banjo, dobro, jaw harp, string bass, guitar, mandolin, three-part harmonies, and a pair of cow bones, this show will delight the uninitiated right alongside the Deadheads in the crowd.
