Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Mandolin Of The Hour


Annabelle Garcia drew this in honor of David Grisman’s birthday; why doesn’t everyone post their favorite Grisman performance in the comments?

  2. Honestly.. the mandolin bit he played on Ripple is my favorite.

    But here is some Django.

  3. 8/25/91 with Garcia/Grisman + Bela Fleck at Squaw is always a favorite.

    If you can find the SBD of this, which floats around, after the show there are some comments from Bill Graham about how appreciative he is of the support of the community for so many years, and how much he’s enjoyed being a part of it. It feels more than a little like a foreshadowing of sorts, since the festival was his last big project before he died exactly two months later. There’s definitely a sense of melancholy to it, at least looking back.

  4. Going to see him Saturday Night! Can’t wait!
