Dave Ruch presents Dead Roots

THE CAVE presents


Sunday, June 20, 2021 4pm $15

ABOUT THE SHOW: Right from the beginning, it was older folk and blues music that was the bedrock of the Grateful Dead’s repertoire, and they 

went on to expose generations of music fans to the nooks, crannies, branches and offshoots of American roots music like perhaps no other act of their size and influence.


Jerry Garcia grew up listening to jazz, traditional folk songs, rhythm and blues, bluegrass, and Appalachian music, first getting together with Bob Weir and Pigpen NOT to start a rock-and-roll band, but to play jug band music.


As the Grateful Dead, they learned songs from itinerant street musicians, covered blues legends and country stars, and packed a gumbo of musical styles into their own canon of beloved original songs.


Join musician and teaching artist Dave Ruch (www.daveruch.com) to explore the rich well of American music that inspired the Grateful Dead. Deeply researched and brimming with great music and stories, the DeadRoots show is performed on acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, banjo, jaw harp and more.
