The amazing David Grisman with his quintet-David played with the Grateful Dead and all the greats of bluegrass and folk. Opening for David is Mike Stein and the Rolling Steins! For nearly half a century, mandolinist / composer / bandleader / producer David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. David skillfully combines elements of the great American music/art forms - jazz and bluegrass -- with many international flavors and sensibilities to create his own distinctive idiom: "Dawg" music, the nickname given to him by Jerry Garcia.

David embraces many styles, genres and traditions. His discography is filled with notables including Stephane Grappelli, the Grateful Dead, John Hartford, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Earl Scruggs, James Taylor and Doc Watson.

David founded Acoustic Disc, producing over 80 critically acclaimed CDs, five of which were Grammy-nominated. In 2010 he launched AcousticOasis.com, the first download website devoted to acoustic music offering over 70 releases which are available in full cd resolution.

David Grisman has always been a revolutionary. He has deeply influenced contemporary acoustic practitioners through his own musical explorations and has helped make artist-owned independent labels a viable force in today's music business.

Join us to hear the indomitable David Grisman play his original "Dawg" compositions and more with this talented group of musicians.
