David Grisman's Dawg Trio
About the Event
The David Grisman Dawg Trio is known for their unique compelling hybrid of bluegrass, jazz, Latin rhythms, klezmer music, and myriad global influences. For nearly half a century, mandolinist, composer, bandleader, producer David Grisman has been a guiding force in the evolving world of acoustic music. He began his career during the explosive folk and blues revival of the 1960s, working in the Even Dozen Jug Band with future stars Maria Muldaur and John Sebastian before launching a career as a solo artist and a collaborator with gypsy jazz legend Stéphane Grappelli, Del McCoury, Red Allen, Bonnie Raitt, and Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, among others. Grisman’s iconic 1975 acoustic quintet album with Jerry Garcia, Old and in the Way, became one of the best-selling bluegrass albums of all time.
Banjo virtuoso Danny Barns was a founding member of the Austin string trio Bad Livers and recipient of the 2015 Steve Martin Prize for Excellence in Banjo and Bluegrass. He has collaborated with various well-known artists over the years, including Bill Frisell, the Dave Matthews Band, and more.
Sam Grisman made his recording debut at age eight with John Hartford, Mike Seeger and his father, David Grisman on their GRAMMY® nominated album, Retrograss. Since then, he has played and/or recorded with Darol Anger, Luke Bulla, Noam Pikelny, Tim O’Brien, Bryan Sutton, the Milk Carton Kids, and numerous others. Growing up in a dawg music-rich environment exposed Sam to many players and styles, making him one of the “go to” bassists of his generation.
