Trey Anastasio Performs With Phil Lesh At Terrapin Crossroads

Phil Lesh and his son Grahame Lesh welcomed Phish’s Trey Anastasio to Terrapin Crossroads Friday night. The brief, unannounced May Day appearance at the venue’s bar stage featured Phil on bass, Grahame and Anastasio on guitar, Danny Eisenberg on keyboards and Terrapin resident drummer Alex Koford. The impromptu performance yielded only two songs Grateful Dead staples “Bertha” sung by Anastasio and “Goin’ Down the Road Feeling Bad.”

The two-song appearance marked the first time Anastasio had performed at the Grateful Dead bassist’s venue in San Rafael, California. Trey and Phil along with the other remaining core four Grateful Dead members, drummers Bill Kreutzmann and  Mickey Hart and guitarist Bob Weir, and keyboardists Bruce Hornsby and Jeff Chimenti will appear together this summer at the five Fare Thee Well Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead concerts in Santa Clara, California and Chicago
