American Beauty Project
Lincoln Center's American Songbook Series recently featured an evening devoted to the lyrics and music of the Grateful Dead. The American Beauty Project, an ensemble of nine musicians, performed pieces with introductions made by Larry Campbell. (Campbell these days often plays with Phil Lesh.

The evening at Lincoln Center gets a good write up by Stephen Holden in the January 19th issue of the New York Times.
