Papa Mali, Bill Kreutzmann, Reed Mathis and Matt Hubbard Wrap Up Colorado Tour
Papa Mali spent the past week in Colorado, playing in a band that also includes Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, bassist Reed Mathis and keyboardist Matt Hubbard. The band headlined Boulder, COs Boulder Theater early in the weekend, offering a set that mixed Dead covers and songs long associated with the group like Mr. Charlie, Turn On Your Love Light and I Know You Rider with New Orleans standards and a few originals. At the start of the groups second set, Anders Beck (dobro) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin) of the Kalamazoo, MI-based Greensky Bluegrass also took the stage with the group for Friend Of The Devil. Papa Mali will play a free show in at Austins Waterloo Park on August 12 as part of KGSRs Blues On The Green.
