This is the first of eight Garcia concerts the guitarist is doing with orchestras around the country, including one in Philadelphia with the PSO. The program is going to be ... well, that's a secret, and it's going to vary from city to city.
Mr. Haynes culled the set list several months ago, and the songs were divided between three or four arrangers. He will be on stage with the orchestra, a rhythm section of Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit) and bassist Lincoln Schleifer (Warren Haynes Band), plus background vocalists Alecia Chakour (WHB) and Jasmine Muhammad (Pittsburgh Opera).
When you have nearly 60 people on stage, you need some pretty detailed charts. But that's just not the Dead way.
"One of the interesting parts of the equation," he says, "is that, in the spirit of the Grateful Dead's music, we asked each arranger to build in windows of improvisation. So there's little sections where the symphony will bow out and the electric band will continue to play in an improvisational way, and upon cue, the symphony will come back in. So that way the songs will take a different path each night. And also in the spirit of the Grateful Dead, the song selection will vary as well."
One would assume that any orchestral Dead set list would include "Terrapin Station," the gorgeous 1977 suite arranged by Paul Buckmaster and performed with the Martyn Ford Orchestra.
"We are not revealing any of the song selections, but 'Terrapin' is definitely one of my all-time favorites," he notes.
"I actually chose the songs based on what I felt would be a list of songs that would most benefit from an orchestra, and that the orchestra would elevate to a higher place," he says. "I didn't choose them from my personal taste. I've sung a lot of these in the past with The Dead and Phil Lesh & Friends, but I didn't want to rely on stuff that I had already sung or played. I wanted to go through and find some more obscure stuff that maybe the audience wouldn't be expecting. It's not going to be a greatest hits show."
The 53-year-old Asheville, N.C., native is primarily a hard-edged blues-rock guitarist who cut his teeth on Eric Clapton (Cream years), Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page. Garcia, whose fluid style tilted toward psychedelic and country blues, doesn't often get the respect of those players in guitar circles. In fact, the most recent Rolling Stone magazine ranking of the Top 100 Guitarists, in 2011, has Garcia, who died in 1995, down at No. 46.
Mr. Haynes says he didn't grow up a Deadhead but saw the Dead in 1979 (a show that included "Terrapin") and then became more interested in the late '80s.
"I started, song by song, realizing how important the catalog was and how great a lot of these songs were," he says. "His legacy speaks for itself and if someone's too close-minded to get it, then that's their own personal opinion. And I think Jerry's legacy is not just as a guitar player and not just as a singer. It's the overall package that made him the true artist that he was. He was also someone, like Miles Davis, who was not content to do what was expected of him. He was always looking for ways to make himself happy musically that may or may not have been what the audience expected or what would make him the most money. He was always a student of music."
In the past we've seen a wide variation of symphonic rock productions from the complexity of the Trey Anastasio show to the more simplistic Ben Folds approach. Mr. Haynes promises that these scores are "quite challenging."
He's played all kinds of venues and festivals all over the world, including last weekend at Bonnaroo. Are there any nerves about this gig?
"Yeah," he says. "It's new territory. You get nervous or anxious any time you dive into uncharted waters."

Happened to be in Pittsburgh on business yesterday & caught the show.
Interesting mix of deadheads and PSO season ticket holders. Most people got it.

Mostly seated until Scarlet. Dancin in the aisles. Band got a kick out of the dancing and sign alongs. 3 loud standing ovations for the orchestra.

Personal highlights:
Scarlet
Shakedown
Delicious Morning Dew
West LA
Encore w/ intro Patchwork

Beautifully restored theatre, very small. Will be interesting to see how the setlists evolve and how the show translates to bigger outdoor venues like my home-field Red Rocks

I was hoping for music from the Jerry solo catalog. "Mission in the Rain", but otherwise a Grateful Dead greatest hits. Close enough, and I'll go.

I really wanted to catch one of these shows. But with no Midwest dates, the logistics just didn't work out. I hope they put this out in some form, but with so many involved, I don't really see that happening.

Wish they were playing a venue closer to Boston, the Mass show is in Lenox which is over 2 hours away in the middle of nowhere.
Unfortunately going to have to pass on it.

2 hours away


??? Are you kidding me? I would kill to have had a show only 2 hours away? Do what ever you have to do and make it out to that show. It's going to be well worth the trip and you won't ever get a chance to see this live again.

I am still holding out hope of making it to Red Rocks, but it isn't looking good.


Warren Haynes to Play Jerry Garcia’s Wolf on Symphony Tour



Warren Haynes will play Jerry Garcia’s classic Wolf guitar during his upcoming symphony tour. Guitar maker Doug Irwin first gave Garcia Wolf in 1973, and the Grateful Dead guitarist used Wolf throughout the mid-‘70s. The custom guitar made a brief comeback in the late-‘80s when it was remodeled with Garcia’s new MIDI synthesizer.

Several members of the extended Grateful Dead family have played Wolf in public in recent years, including Ryan Adams, Chris Robinson, Neal Casal, Jimmy Herring, Jeff Mattson and Barry Sless.

Haynes’ symphonic celebration of Garcia’s music will kick off at Pittsburgh, PA’s Heinz Hall tomorrow evening. The guitarist will use Wolf throughout his symphony tour.

Robert Hunter should be getting equal billing on these shows considering he wrote the lyrics.

Last nights show was sweet! I think the only change in the setlist was the last song he played Stella Blue instead of China Doll. Jeff Sipe on drums was nice too.
