Pro-Shot Video: Travelin’ McCourys & Jeff Austin Band Cover Grateful Dead’s ‘Loser’


Last fall The Travelin’ McCourys and the Jeff Austin Band came together for the The Grateful Ball Tour in which the two acts teamed up to deliver a nightly set of Grateful Dead covers. The bluegrass groups have shared official video footage of “Loser” from their co-bill at The Hamilton Live in Washington D.C. on October 26, 2016.

Written by Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia, “Loser” was debuted by the Grateful Dead on February 18, 1971 at The Capitol Theater in Port Chester, New York. It was played by the Dead on more than 340 occasions, including a final time on June 28, 1995 at The Palace in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
