‘So Many Roads’ fest honors the Dead
PARKSVILLE, NY — The Grateful Dead’s final performance in July of 1995 marked the end of an era. To celebrate their legacy, a regional festival named after a song from the last set the group ever played, “So Many Roads,” will be held at the Arrowhead Ranch from July 5 at 2 p.m. to July 7 at 6 p.m.
Twenty-four years ago, on July 9, 1995, the iconic jam band took the stage for the last time in Chicago’s Soldier Field. Their music has travelled in different paths ever since. Anywhere from large arenas to local taverns, Grateful Dead tunes are still requested and revered.
So Many Roads will feature local musicians from all over the tristate area. They will be playing music that honors Jerry Garcia and his band’s classic sound.
Music lovers and festival trippers can expect to see performances by Free Grass Union, Dead on the Tracks, Gratefully Yours, PURE JERRY and so many more.
So Many Roads, a production put on by John Cino and Nina Ezrati Wagner, welcomes the whole Deadhead Gang to join in and jam out at this special event.
