Bob Weir Plays Intimate Charity Event in Aspen

via Weir’s Facebook

While off the road from Dead & Company tour, Bob Weir is putting in some charity work, as the Grateful Dead guitarist played an intimate show at Neverland Garden outside Aspen, CO, over the weekend to raise money for The Kitchen Community, a program that builds “learning gardens” in schools across the country.

Weir played a mostly solo set of covers, solo tunes and Dead cuts, starting with “Walkin’ Blues” and the Weir staples “Loose Lucy” and “Peggy O” before getting into a couple tracks from his solo record Blue Mountain, including the title song and “Only a River.” Percussionist and Weir collaborator Wally Ingram joined in for the latter tune and stayed around for the final run of “Not Fade Away” and “Ripple.”

Next up for Weir is the Jerry Garcia 75th Birthday Concert at Colorado’s Red Rocks this Friday, August 4.
