Guitarist Tom Hamilton (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Ghost Light) and pianist Holly Bowling (Ghost Light) will delve into the legendary catalogue of the Grateful Dead at Port Chester’s The Capitol Theatre on Friday, June 1. Ushering in a new level of intimacy, Hamilton and Bowling will utilize acoustic instruments to explore the vast realms of the Dead’s music.
Between playing in the most popular Grateful Dead tribute acts of the past decade as well as working alongside the likes of “core four” of the Grateful Dead, Tom Hamilton has been a huge proponent in modernizing the catalogue of the Grateful Dead for new audiences to enjoy.
Bowling, a classically-trained pianist since the age of 5, is no stranger to the jam scene, having been to over 300 Phish shows and transcribed the 37-minute improvisational masterpiece of the “Tahoe Tweezer” note-for-note on the piano. She has since played with numerous pantheons in the jam world including the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. This will be her debut performance at The Capitol Theatre.
