A pillar of the jam world along with one of the genre’s most innovative acts are coming to Red Rocks in the spring of 2018. Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band will be teaming up with Colorado’s own Leftover Salmon for a stellar co-headlining bill at the iconic amphitheatre on Saturday, May 5.

Since the passing of Jerry Garcia in 1995, Phil Lesh has tirelessly carried on the Grateful Dead’s legacy with his cosmic revolving door band Phil Lesh and Friends as well as his team up with fellow founding member of the Dead Bob Weir in Furthur. But it seems that with Terrapin Family Band, the 77-year-old elder statesman of the jam scene has really found his post-Dead bliss.
Undoubtedly, one of the reasons for Phil's happiness is being able to share the stage with his son Grahame Lesh, as well as group of organically curated musicians who turned up to play at Phil’s Terrapin Crossroads venue in Marin County, CA over the past several years.
Adding to this jammy co-bill at Red Rocks are Leftover Salmon, who practically invented the subset of jam music called “jamgrass,” although the band likes to call it “polyethnic cajun slamgrass.” Either way you slice it it’s going to be a great show.
