Dawg Tales: The Acoustic Tribute to David Grisman is a homegrown instrumental homage to the man widely regarded as the world's premier mandolinist. A former player for the Grateful Dead, whose bluegrass collaborations with Jerry Garcia are legendary, Grisman has earned his own place as a modern-day troubadour of consummate ability, carving out a unique genre for himself.
"Dawg Music" is the term for Grisman's distinctive style, a blend of folk traditions from bluegrass to swing and Latin to jazz. Dawg Tales is a kindred interweaving of sweet mandolin and fiery fiddle as well as skillful use of violin, marimba, accordion and clarinet as several of today's top musicians match wits with the poetic timbres and tones of Grisman's innovative tunes. Dawg Tales: The Acoustic Tribute to David Grisman is music for all generations, masterful interpretations of a virtuoso performer and producer – David Grisman, bluegrass music's best friend.
