In honor of Garcias 77th birthday, a stellar group of songwriters and acoustic instrumentalists comes together to celebrate his spirit and legacyas a guitarist, as a songwriter, and as an interpreter of American roots music.

JEFFERSON HAMER is a songwriter, guitarist, and traditional musician based in Brooklyn. He performs with Eamon OLeary in the Murphy Beds, featuring harmony vocals backed by intricate guitar and bouzouki, and with the roots-rock ensemble Session Americana. Hamers 2013 Child Ballads album with Anaïs Mitchell earned a BBC2 Folk Award and was named one of NPRs top-ten folk releases of the year.

JEFFREY PEPPER RODGERS is a grand prize winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine. He interviewed both Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir and is author of a video series teaching Grateful Dead songs for acoustic guitar. Joining him is multi-instrumentalist/songwriter WENDY RAMSAY, his partner in the duo Pepper and Sassafras.

RYAN FITZSIMMONS, LAURENCE SCUDDER, and JIM LARKIN are fixtures of the Boston roots-rock scene and frequent collaborators. Fitzsimmons has steadily built a reputation as one of the Northeasts most compelling songwriters. In the words of Red Line Roots, he is a brutal force of nature on acoustic guitar. He plays with a fire and fierceness that cannot be tamed, or faked for that matter. Violist/singer/songwriter Laurence Scudder and bassist/drummer Jim Larkin perform with Spotted Tiger, Danielle M and the Glory Junkies, and many other Boston-area bands.
