Phil Lesh & Grahame Lesh Perform Grateful Dead Songs Live For ‘Terrapin TV’
Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh teamed up with his son, guitarist Grahame Lesh to perform four GD songs on Monday’s Terrapin TV livestream. Phil & Grahame’s set came in support of the Terrapin Crossroads Staff Appreciation Fund.
The pair played in the same space but separated by 25 feet and each wearing masks in keeping with restrictions put in place due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Episode Four of Terrapin TV marked the first live performance aired during the livestreamed video series as previous installments were pre-recorded.
Grahame and Phil kicked off their 40+ minute concert with “Liberty” in honor of Memorial Day. The duo then lit into an “Uncle John’s Band” on which they shared vocal duties. Some brief technical difficulties left the pair inaudible for a few minutes but the Leshes soon corrected the issues and played “Shakedown Street” before saying farewell with a Grahame-sung “Bertha.” Watch last night’s Terrapin TV below and head here to donate to the Terrapin Crossroads Staff Appreciation Fund:
