Painted Mandolin

With jamming instrumentals and soaring harmonies, Painted Mandolin explores the acoustic side of Jerry Garcia, from his Jug Band days, to Old and in the Way, through the Dead’s Reckoning period, and Garcia/Grisman. Painted Mandolin features a cavalcade of talent, including Joe Craven (violin/percussion/mandolin), Larry Graff (guitar/mandolin), Matt Hartle (guitar/banjotar) and Roger Sideman (bass). A big hit at last year’s Fall Festival, they continue to gain traction in California’s music scene.
