Kreutzmann, Burbridge and Montbleau Collaborate at Camp Creek

One of the summer’s longest running annual festivals, Max Creek’s Camp Creek, returned to Mariaville, NY from July 25-27. Max Creek guitarist Scott Murawski has recently received some long overdue recognition thanks to his work with Mike Gordon and his new trio with Bill Kreutzmann and Oteil Burbridge. Kreutzmann, Burbridge & Murawski appeared at Camp Creek Friday and Kreutzmann stuck around to sit in with Max Creek for a version of Paul Simon’s ‘Late In the Evening’ and the run from Grateful Dead’s ‘Truckin’‘ into ‘U.S. Blues.’ For his part, Burbridge participated in a Super Jam that took place Friday evening featuring all of Max Creek, as well as members of both Domino Theory and Fungus Amungus. A handful of other guests also jammed with Max Creek throughout the weekend, including The Druids’ Greg Rosedale and The Breakfast’s Adrian Tramantano, the latter of whom sat in for a take on ‘Mystery Train Part II.’

Another weekend highlight was a high-energy performance by Ryan Montbleau Band Sunday afternoon that came to a close with a cover of Eddy Grant’s ‘Electric Avenue.’ Near the end of the cover, an animated Montbleau jumped into the crowd to run around in the mud and then slide across part of the field, before returning to the stage to finish the song before it was cut short due to more heavy rainfall. Keyboardist Nate Wilson (Nate Wilson Group, Assembly of Dust) also joined Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover during their Friday evening set for versions of ‘Ali’ and ‘Friends.’
