You’ve been waiting, and here it is. We’re excited to announce the Friends who will perform with Phil Lesh this year: Saturday night, Phil Lesh will be joined by Phish’s drummer and first-time Friend Jon Fishman, Phish’s keyboardist Page McConnell, who will be making his return to PL&F for the first time since the 90s, Furthur bandmate and longtime comrade Joe Russo, and finger pickin’ bluegrass outfit The Infamous Stringdusters. Saturday’s Phil Lesh & Friends performance featuring Jon Fishman & Joe Russo will invoke the legendary double-drumming spirit of the Grateful Dead.
On Sunday, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, amplified with a special guest sit-in by guitar hero Gary Clark Jr., will make extraordinary Grateful Dead moments happen at LOCKN’. As some of our favorite Friends of Phil, we’re really looking forward to opening new doors with CRB.
