Greensky Bluegrass Honors The Werks With Grateful Dead Cover


Ohio jam-rockers The Werks experienced life’s highs and lows within the same day last week, when hours after a triumphant debut on Jam Cruise they learned former keyboardist Norman Dimitrouleas had died. Not only was Norman a beloved former band mate, but he was the brother of current Werks bassist Dino Dimitrouleas. The Werks received love from many corners of the jam world with the most recent musical embrace coming from Michigan jamgrass act Greensky Bluegrass.

Greensky Bluegrass dedicated a beautiful version of “Black Muddy River” by the Grateful Dead to The Werks on Saturday night at the Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio. Anders Beck of Greensky made the dedication, telling the capacity crowd “Don’t forget to tell your friends that you love them.” Watch footage of the dedication and “Black Muddy River” captured by IzeOfTheWorldPhotos:

Winter Tour continues for Greensky Bluegrass tomorrow night in Louisville, Kentucky.
