What better way to relieve the stress of paying your taxes than to go to a show that promises to be amazing.

For those who may not know Grisman, he is one of the finest mandolin players in the world in any genre.

He has been making music since he 1963, starting in the New York area in a jug band. The next year he met Jerry Garcia (ultimately with The Grateful Dead), who gave Grisman his nickname Dawg. That started a long and deep friendship that ended with Garcia’s untimely death.

He plays bluegrass, newgrass, jazz, folk, and Americana, and probably other styles that do not come to mind. He has collaborated with such incredible artists as Del McCoury, Stephane Grapelli, and Peter Rowan.

He does not tour a lot these days, so this is a great opportunity to see a master in action. Opening the show for Grisman is Cold Chocolate.

Tickets are available here.

I've loved the arts all my life... I go to a lot of concerts, take lots of photos and want to share them. Every once in a while I do something other than a concert, too. The Boston area is full of opportunities to indulge my passion - I'd like to help make it yours too!
