Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Phil Lesh and Friends

"Mason's Children" by Phil Lesh & Friends from The Capitol Theatre on Vimeo.

Phil Lesh and Friends played "Mason's Children" at the Capitol Theater, Port Chester, NY, on October 31, 2014. The seemingly mythological song, written by Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, was part of the Grateful Dead's early repertoire, around the time of a memorable show I attended as a teen at the Fillmore East in 1970. Lesh, who was the group's bassist, now includes it in his concerts, complete with a spacey jam quite pleasant to these ancient ears.
