Dead Ends Live has been created by Peter North, the onetime radio producer who hosted the popular program Dead Ends And Detours for 17 years on the CKUA Radio Network. This new live, indoor festival event is built around the common themes and threads that ran through his radio show. Those common threads are the musical roots and branches of The Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia along with the influences and sounds of The Band and Bob Dylan, as well as mandolinist David Grisman and the inspiring musicians who built the new acoustic music scene.
CHURCH PASS $60.00
The Dead Ends Live Weekend Church Pass is a must for fans of acoustic music and instrumental magic that draws on any number of influences and genres. Six sets of music from Friday night through Saturday night, including two matinee / workshop performances. From a headline solo performance from John Kadlecik who founded Dark Star Orchestra and worked extensively with Bob Weir & Phil Lesh, and the bluegrass sounds of Chris & Sally Jones to an all-star Fiddle Forum, plus a full set of the Garcia Songbook from David Gans & Joe Craven and a Roots of the Grateful Dead workshop, the mastery of the participating artists and the brilliant acoustics of MacDougall make for a winning combination.
