If you’re a Grateful Dead fan with young kids, you’ve probably wanted to bring them with you to share your love of this incredible band. Now you can — at the American Visionary Arts Museum, one of Baltimore’s most iconic museums — with Ed Hough’s Dead Collective, who are some of Baltimore’s best roots and Americana musicians.
As a founding member of Smooth Kentucky, Ed Hough has been on the Baltimore music scene for decades as a singer and drummer. He has channeled the music of the Grateful Dead many times with his friend Cris Jacobs, who also plays in the Bridge. For this show, Ed’s joined by:
Keyboardist Mookie Seigel, who has played with Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh & Friends as well as Grateful Dead singer/guitarist Bob Weir’s Rat Dog
Bassist David Markowitz, who is also a member of Baltimore roots rock/Americana mainstays The Bridge
Guitarist Tim Pruitt, who has performed with a long list of D.C.- and Baltimore-based musicians over more than three decades
Admission to this show includes organic snacks and juice for kids, coffee for adults, and admission to the first two floors of AVAM’s banquet hall, where tons of colorful, engaging artwork are on display.
Doors open at 9 a.m. and the show starts at 9:30 a.m. so you can be home in time for (family) naptime.
