If you're either a lover of Celtic music or a bonafide Deadhead, or you just like your music to be completely unique, this concert is for you. WAKE THE DEAD, the world's only Celtic All-Star Grateful Dead jam bend, will be heading to Southern Oregon this September.
WAKE THE DEAD is a romp that flows seamlessly from rock grooves to hot Irish reels, and from haunting airs to achingly beautiful melodies familiar to Deadheads everywhere. "Sugaree" in waltz time, bracketed by an ancient harp tune and infused with a poignant Celtic longing. "Bertha" thundering out of "China Cat" on a mandolin tidal wave. The eerie lilt of the uilleann pipes giving a glow to "Bird Song" as if it was always meant to be there. Groove jams to keep the tie-dye swirling. And vocal harmonies that float like clouds.
