Bonfire Block Party announces Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass as one act for festival
Bonfire Block Party has announced the first of 13 artists playing the festival from June 12-14: Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass.
The superband features Williams and an all-star lineup on one of the two main stages in Eagle, CO.
Williams himself is a big collaborator. He has worked with Keller & The Keels, with More Than a Little, the Hillbenders, The Travelin’ McCourys and more. Grateful Grass’s schtick is “loose interpretations of Grateful Dead songs done in a bluegrass style,” Williams said. “If you like singing along to Dead songs [and] dancing double time to the music, this is definitely your jam.”
Grateful Grass’ rotating lineup has included The Keels, Keith Moseley (String Cheese Incident), Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green), Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), The Infamous Stringdusters and more. The Block Party Grateful Grass collaborators will be announced closer to the date.
