Thread Name: Tune Req: Grateful Dead banjo tab
Subject: RE: Grateful Dead's rebirthing......
Polar Bear,

I can't help you with tab, but I can turn you on to some great interpretation of the Dead's work.

Soon to be in record shops near you, pick up a copy Wake the Dead, a Celtic Celebration of the Grateful Dead, by Uncle Shaun's Band. It's Dead tunes played on traditional Irish instruments. Jigs and reels fill the breaks. Uncle Shaun's Band tore the place up at Lark in the Morning's World Music & Dance Festival at the Cannery in San Francisco last weekend.

Old friend Danny Carnahan plays fiddle and sings. Here's the rest of the impressive line-up: Maureen Brennan, Cindy Browne, Kevin Carr, Sylvia Herrold, Paul Katopish.

The album, released on the Greatful Dead label, with their endorsement, will be worth your time and money.
