A New Leg for Hydras Two Heads
Hyrda, the union of Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart and Particle, will extend its spring tour through JazzFest. The new collective will now perform in Ashville, NC, St. Pete, FL and Ft. Lauderdale, FL, before concluding its first outing at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival on May 1. A number of electronic and organic acts will join Hyrda on the road this spring. Confirmed openers include Motion Potion (4/7), Mocean Worker (4/8-15), Matisyahu (4/21), Kaki King (4/22) and Josh Wink (4/23-24). As previously reported, Hydra will offer a mix of Grateful Dead and Particle originals, as well as serving a handful of new compositions.
