Woody Harrelson & John Popper Perform With Grateful Dead Members At Sundance

As reported, the long-awaited Grateful Dead documentary film Long Strange Trip is making its world debut at the currently underway Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Yesterday, three of the four surviving members of the Dead performed together at a private event at The Spur celebrating the new four-hour feature film.

Director Amir Bar-Lev and executive producer Martin Scorsese recently sold the rights to the six-part documentary to Amazon. Sunday’s Amazon Studios’ sponsored event featured Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir and drummers Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart performing an intimate acoustic set. The legendary musicians were joined for part of the performance by Blues Traveler frontman John Popper on harmonica and actor Woody Harrelson on vocals.

The set saw Bobby, Billy and Mickey work up a rendition of “Loose Lucy” and Little Feat’s “Easy To Slip.” The trio of Dead & Company band mates brought up Popper to assist on the Dead’s “West L.A. Fadeaway.” They also welcomed Harrelson up to sing the Elvis Presley hit “Heartbreak Hotel” and the Buddy Holly favorite “Not Fade Away.”
