John Scofield Covers Grateful Dead’s ‘Standing On The Moon’ For Terrapin Crossroads
John Scofield was among the performers who contributed to a Wednesday night livestream for San Rafael, California venue/restaurant Terrapin Crossroads. Scofield covered the Grateful Dead classic “Standing On The Moon” during the livestream.
The livestream came in honor of and in support of the newly launched Terrapin Crossroads Staff Appreciation Fund. Co-owners Phil Lesh and Jill Lesh announced the campaign to raise funds for employees of the venue/restaurant via a note posted on Wednesday.
Phil Lesh introduced the livestream, dubbed Terrapin TV by discussing the fund. Next came Scofield’s instrumental rendition of “Standing On The Moon,” a Hunter/Garcia ballad the Dead recorded for their 1989 studio album, Built To Last. Lesh returned to introduce Dark Star Orchestra and former Phil Lesh & Friends keyboardist Rob Barraco who played “They Love Each Other.” The livestream ended with the Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band's previously released “Box Of Rain” isolation video.
