Circles Around The Sun To Play Post-Dead & Company Show In Boulder

first_img[courtesy of Greg Crist]With the release of the album proper, Interludes For The Dead, fans of the project were given the opportunity to once again listen to the brilliance that was created by Casal and cohorts. Clearly inspired by the Dead themselves, the songs on the album not only take various references from the legendary’s groups catalog, like “Kasey’s Bones,” “Farewell Franklins,” and “Scarlotta’s Magnolia’s,” the music itself veers in and out of themes and styles Jerry Garcia and his brothers-in-musical-arms put into action over the course of their career.Tickets for the show are currently on-sale and can be purchased here.

Two summers back when the Grateful Dead were planning their 50th Anniversary Fare Thee Well performance at Soldier Field in Chicago, it was decided that Chris Robinson Brotherhood guitarist and frequent Phil Lesh & Friends collaborator Neal Casal would create the set-break music. The group he brought together was dubbed Circles Around The Sun, and many of us didn’t know exactly what we were hearing during those shows, but our ears could not stop listening as the Dead regrouped backstage for set two.As we learned that weekend, it was Casal, along with the help of keyboardist Adam MacDougall, bassist Dan Horne, and drummer Mark Levy, that kept the vibe at a high during set break. After debuting the project in a live setting last year for a few performances, Circles Around The Sun will play The Boulder Theater after Dead & Company‘s performance at Folsom Field in Boulder, CO on Friday June 9th.last_img
