Trevor Garrod Honors Grateful Dead Lyricist Robert Hunter
Tea Leaf Green keyboardist Trevor Garrod continued a series of Monday solo performances on Facebook Live yesterday. Garrod has been working his way through the alphabet by playing songs starting with a different letter each week. Last night’s installment was supposed to feature tunes that begin with the letter “Q.” However, Garrod decided to honor Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, who died last week, since he doesn’t have any songs that start with “Q.”
Trevor began his performance with a gorgeous rendition of “Terrapin Station.” He then treated the audience at home to “It Must Have Been The Roses.” Garrod went on to play “Uncle John’s Band” after noting he never sees anyone else perform the tune. “It’s the classic song that reminds me of being in junior high,” the pianist explained. The 33-minute session continued with “Brokedown Palace” and Trevor augmented his piano work with harmonica on the “Friend Of The Devil” finale.
