Painted Mandolin

The area in front of the Forest Stage on this sun-splashed Saturday afternoon at The Hog Farm Hideaway is alive with a swirling mass of tie-dyed dust dancing dervishes as Painted Mandolin takes the stage. The band, which gets its name from a lyric in a Jerry Garcia Band song (Reuben And Cherise), is fronted by multi-instrumentalist and former Garcia/Grisman sideman Joe Craven.
