Bay Area favorites and Terrapin Crossroads regulars Midnight North are about to kick off a coast-to-coast summer tour tomorrow and are celebrating the occasion with a special treat for fans. The band led by Grahame Lesh featuring guitarist/keyboardist Elliott Peck, organist/guitarist Alex Jordan, bassist Connor Croonn and drummer Alex Koford have released a free full-length album recorded live at Grahame’s parents’ San Rafael, California venue titled Live At Terrapin Crossroads.

“Our most memorable shows happen when we have guests sit in, which at Terrapin Crossroads, could happen at any time,” said Grahame Lesh, son of the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh. “On ‘Viola Lee Blues,’ you’ll notice that the first verse has no organ, but Jason Crosby happened to be in the house that night, and 90 seconds into the song he just sat down at the open keyboard and started wailing! Many times a guest musician will be playing one of our songs for the first time which always brings a unique, unfiltered flavor to the tunes.”

Special guests on Live at Terrapin Crossroads include Crosby (Phil Lesh & Friends, Robert Randolph & The Family Band), guitarist Scott Law and guitarist Greg Loiacono (The Mother Hips/ Sensations). Head to Bandcamp to download Live At Terrapin Crossroads free of charge. Midnight North starts tour tomorrow in Frisco, Colorado.
