The Sam Grisman Project Announces 2023 Tour Dates

Sam Grisman Project

The Sam Grisman Project has unveiled a set of tour dates from June to November, covering much of the continental United States. Bassist and bandleader Grisman, the son of mandolin icon David Grisman, started the band to celebrate his father’s and Jerry Garcia’s music.

“The music that my father, David Grisman, and his close friend, Jerry Garcia, made in the early 90s (in the house that I grew up in) is not only some of the most timeless acoustic music ever recorded, it also triggers my oldest and fondest musical memories,” he shares. “My goal in starting Sam Grisman Project is to build a platform for my friends and me to showcase our genuine passion and appreciation for the legacy of Dawg and Jerry’s music. By playing some of their beloved repertoire and sharing the original music that our own collective has to offer, we will also show the impact that this music has had on our own individual musical voices.”

The Project’s next 2023 tour dates begin June 22nd at Bears Picnic Get Down in Blain, Pennsylvania. They’ll be appearing at several festivals before heading to San Francisco in July and bouncing between the Midwest and the Rockies for the month. The rest of the year will be spent in the East, with a final date set for November 4th in Washington, DC.

Grisman often plays upright bass, but check out the band’s killer version of “Stealin’” with him on the electric:
