Phil & Bob in Furthur by Susan J. Weiand
Furthur will perform six classic Grateful Dead albums at Furthur Fest, taking place May 28-30 at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds in Angels Camp, CA. The schedule is:

Saturday – Set I - American Beauty
Saturday – Set II - Workingman's Dead
Saturday – Set III - Anthem of the Sun
Sunday – Set I - Blues For Allah
Sunday – Set II - Aoxomoxoa
Sunday – Set III - Terrapin Station

In an ongoing series of videos discussing these Grateful Dead albums, the latest installment features Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, along with kindred spirit-turned-intrepid-interviewer Jackie Greene and longtime Grateful Dead road manager Rock Scully, talking about the creation of Workingman's Dead. The quality of the songs Jerry was bringing to the table, along with the influence of Crosby, Stills and Nash, are revealed as two of the biggest inspirations behind the 1970 classic. Check out the video and the earlier discussion of American Beauty here.

Furthur will do an "Open Aire Soundcheck" on Friday, May 28. The full Furthur Stage schedule for the weekend can be found here, and the schedule for the daytime Sunshine Stage is here. The schedule for the acoustic Dark Hollow Stage, curated by Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams has not been set, but the late night set for Friday will be an All-Star Jam Session and on Saturday night it's Galactic at what the fest has dubbed the "Frogtown Fillmore."
