Beloved Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh is keeping himself busy these days, whether its performing with his own band or sitting in with the many groups that perform at his venue, Terrapin Crossroads. The San Rafael, CA locale will see Lesh play with a number of groups next weekend, as he’s been announced for shows during three consecutive nights at Terrapin.The first comes next Thursday, April 7th, when Lesh joins North Mississippi All-Stars’ guitarist Luther Dickinson & The Cooperators. Lesh and Dickinson have a long history together, as they’ve collaborated many times in the past. On the next evening, April 8th, Lesh will play with Americana band Goodnight, Texas, and his son Grahame Lesh’s band Midnight North will open.Finally, Lesh will perform with Jason Crosby & Friends on April 9th, which features venue regulars Stu Allen, Scott Law, and Jay Lane. Jason’s brother Chris Crosby will play bass when Lesh isn’t sitting in. Basically, this looks to be a Phil & Friends set, just one where Lesh doesn’t perform for the whole show.The Lesh-filled weekend looks to be a great one! More information here.
