Painted Mandolin is an all-star quartet dedicated to exploring the acoustic side of Jerry Garcia. The group digs into Garcia’s music from his jug band days with Old and In the Way, the Grateful Dead’s Reckoning and his collaborations with David Grisman in the Garcia Grisman Band.
Painted Mandolin features:
Joe Craven – violin/mandolin/percussion
Matt Hartle – lead guitar
Larry Graff – lead guitar
Dan Robbins – bass
Joe Craven is not just an entertaining musician with a penchant for the mischievous, he is a teacher and student all at once and he will draw you into his performance by including you as though you’re part of the show itself. His gift of gab is unprecedented and his musical knowledge impressive. Joe’s openness and expression of gratitude for the gifts he’s acquired make it all the more fun for him to share them with his audience.
