Phil Lesh, founding member of the Grateful Dead, will announce his lineup of “friends” coming with him to perform in Lake Tahoe soon.

Lesh toured with a regularly rotating lineup of musicians that included Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, Jorma Kaukonen, Jimmy Herring, Robben Ford, and members of Phish, Little Feat, The String Cheese Incident, Moe and more. Renowned for his three-decade stint as the bassist with the Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh proved a fan favorite as much for his distinctive jazz playing as for his single-minded devotion to the band, overseeing the quality of every legitimate release.

Adding to the Bluegrass & Beyond lineup will be Leftover Salmon.  Few bands stick around for 30 years. Even fewer bands leave a legacy that marks them as a truly special, once-in-lifetime type band. And no band has done all that and had as much fun as Leftover Salmon.

Since their earliest days as a forward thinking, progressive bluegrass band who had the guts to add drums to the mix and who were unafraid to stir in any number of highly combustible styles into their ever-evolving sound, to their role as pioneers of the modern jamband scene, to their current status as influential elder-statesmen of that scene โ€” casting a huge shadow over every festival they play โ€” Leftover Salmon has been a crucial link in keeping the traditional music of the past alive, simultaneously pushing that sound forward with their own weirdly unique style.  

The festival grounds will include a beautiful 30,000 square feet of real grass lawn, beautiful shade structures and sails, a vendor village with arts, crafts, clothing, festival merchandise, and more, live artist paint wall, and great Food & Beverage offerings.

This is an All-Ages event.  Minors under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
