- In 1970, the Grateful Dead entered the studio to record two landmark albums, Workingman's Dead and American Beauty. These albums have become legendary in the annals of music history and mark a departure from the band's "original" jam sound toward an exploration of folk and bluegrass traditions. Paying homage, a roster of acclaimed artists including Ollabelle, Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, Jim Lauderdale and Catherine Russell recreate and perform songs from both these works. The ensemble has performed at Lincoln Center in New York City (as part of the American Songbook series) as well as at Universities around the country.
