American Beauty: The Sounds of the Grateful Dead at Bird

Founded in Palo Alto in 1965 and deeply rooted in San Francisco’s counter-culture, the Grateful Dead “fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia and space rock.” (Wikipedia)

Perhaps most famous for their live shows and lengthy instrumental jams, the Dead can teach us about performance, experimentation, improvisation and innovation, as well as blending our various influences into our music.

The session starts January 30, 2017 and runs through the show April 9. Sign up now!
