Phil Lesh and Bob Weir Share the Stage in Marin
Bob Weir and Phil Lesh reunited for an afternoon set at San Rafael, Calif.’s Terrapin Crossroads earlier today. The Grateful Dead co-founders and Ross James, a steady member of Lesh’s Terrapin Family Band, took the stage at Lesh’s Marin County venue as part of the bassist’s new outdoor weekend series. (Lesh recently opened a new community-centric, outdoor backyard space and has hosted a variety of weekend programs this spring). The musicians ran through a family friendly set that included Bob Dylan’s “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” Jesse Fuller’s Dead-adopted acoustic favorite “Money & The Engineer,” the Willie Nelson signature “On the Road Again,” Bill Browning’s “Dark Hollow,” “Friend of the Devil” and “Ripple.”
The performance marks only the second time Weir and Lesh have shared the stage since Fare Thee Well. Weir also joined Lesh and Midnight North at New York’s S.O.B’s for a stealth set in November.
