“A superb collection of mostly Dead covers (listen especially to their superb reimagining of ‘New Speedway Boogie‘), the band’s First Rehearsals CD showcases the magic that can happen when fine musicians well-versed in the Dead’s unique approach to small group improvisation get together to play their favorite tunes from the Grateful Dead songbook. The band’s bluegrass/newgrass arrangements tease out new layers of meaning to chestnuts long familiar to Deadheads, making this one of the most exciting revisits of Dead music in many years. ”
Sycamore Slough String Band is honored to open for nine-time Grammy winners Asleep At The Wheel June 10 in Ukiah!
Our new CD is ready and hot off the presses! Please go to our ‘First Rehearsals’ page and check it out!
