Fans of acoustic jam-grass this is your show and I love not just the fact that TLR’s songlist is right up my alley but also the chance to lay down some fun Jerry leads à la Acoustic JGB and Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews Band, etc. Two guitars, bass and lots of harmonizing too compliments the Pickin’’ and grinnin’
