WAKE THE DEAD
- Castoro Cellars - Saturday, August 22 - $22 - show starts at 7:00
Wake the Dead is a collection of very talented musicians who continually amaze audiences with their sound and arrangements. Billed as the "World's First Celtic All-Star Grateful Dead Jam Band" they weave original music, traditional Celtic fare, and 'covers' of Grateful Dead hits into a musical phenomenon. Don't miss them!
“Shimmering renditions of Dead music fused with Celtic beauty. The music is beautiful, masterfully performed with Dead-hommage vocal style, great traditional Celtic instrumentation. The Dead songs fit this genre very well. I think any fan of the Dead will appreciate these renditions of their music. I know Jerry would’ve dug them.”
Reed Maidenberg, Amazon.com
“[Wake the Dead] have found a spiritual walkway between Irish music and the Grateful Dead . . . There’s a sense of longing in every CD track.”
