Wake the DeadWhat could be more fitting? Wake the Dead plays the Freight on Halloween, or, if you prefer All Hallows’ Eve, a time to remember the dead and the Grateful Dead, with the world’s first Celtic all-star Grateful Dead jam band. They’ve recently brought their unique brand of musical alchemy to the Summer of Love, much to the delight of Deadheads, folkies, rockers, and lovers of Irish reels. The Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit,” the Youngblood’s “Get Together,” Steven Stills’ “Love the One You’re With” – all receive the band’s unique Celtic twist. “If you didn’t know the songs, or hadn’t read the credits,” says Shaun Dale in Cosmik Debris Magazine, “it would be easy get swept up in this music and imagine that some of the Garcia/Hunter material came from the pen of Turlough O’Carolan himself. Every segue works, and every song is beautiful.”
The band features Maureen Brennan on harp, Cindy Browne on bass, Danny Carnahan on vocals, fiddle, octave mandolin, and guitar, Kevin Carr on fiddle, whistles and uilleann pipes, Sylvia Herold on vocals, Paul Kotapish on mandolin, guitar, and jaw harp, and Brian Rice on percussion. Their shows tend to sell out, so get your tickets early and enjoy a show that’s sure to be spooky, freaky, and exquisitely other worldly.
