Sam Grisman Project set to play The Harvester in May

ROCKY MOUNT, Virginia — The Harvester will host Sam Grisman Project on Saturday, May 4, at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

Grisman, the son of “Dawg music” pioneer David Grisman, created Sam Grisman Project to celebrate the music his father made in the ‘90s with Grateful Dead co-founder Jerry Garcia. 

“My goal in starting Sam Grisman Project is to build a platform for my friends and me to showcase our genuine passion and appreciation for the legacy of Dawg and Jerry’s music. By playing some of their beloved repertoire and sharing the original music that our own collective has to offer, we will also show the impact that this music has had on our own individual musical voices. Ultimately, there is nothing that makes me happier than playing great songs with my best friends and my hope is to share that happiness with audiences all over!”

Tickets start at $27 and go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at
