Under the direction of Keith Lockhart, the famed Boston Pops have tackled a myriad of rock classics over the years. On June 22nd, the groundbreaking orchestra will hit right in our wheelhouse when they present a tribute to Grateful Dead front man Jerry Garcia featuring vocalist/guitarist Warren Haynes at Tanglewood in Western Mass.
The presentation will be dubbed “Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration” and it “will feature new orchestral arrangements of Jerry Garcia’s storied original compositions as well as classic interpretations of timeless standards that were hallmarks of Garcia’s shows. Powerhouse vocalist and guitarist Warren Haynes (The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead, and Gov’t Mule) will collaborate with the symphony, lending his soul-soaked, introspective blend of rock, blues, R&B, and jazz to Garcia’s masterworks.”
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 27, at www.tanglewood.org, by calling 888-266-1200, or at the Symphony Hall box office in Boston, MA.
