Bob Weir Invites You to His Online Jerry Garcia Tribute
Bob Weir has created a short video invite to his special TRI Studios webcast event Move Me Brightly. Named after a line in the classic Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter song “Terrapin Station,” the evening webcast event will take place on August 3 celebrating Garcia’s 70th birthday. Weir will perform alongside an growing lineup that now includes Lukas Nelson, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers’ Benmont Tench, Furthur’s Joe Russo and Jeff Chimenti, Phish’s Mike Gordon, Paul Simon’s son Harper Simon, psychedelic folk musician Jonathan Wilson and Bay Area singer-songwriter Cass McCombs. TRI Studios is expected to add additional acts in the coming weeks.
In addition, during the broadcast Carlos Santana will honor his fellow guitar great via a video interview while David Crosby will read the poetic tribute, “Cause I’m Missing Him Tonight,” which was written specifically for his old friend. Garcia’s daughters, his brother, Tiff and ex-wife Carolyn “Mountain Girl” Garcia will be on hand, as will basketball star and noted Deadhead Bill Walton.
