Phil and Grahame Lesh


In this episode of Plus One Eric welcomes Phil Lesh, the legendary bassist of the Grateful Dead and Phil’s son Grahame Lesh of Midnight North and Terrapin Family Band. Phil talks about switching from violin to bass when Jerry asked him to join The Dead, and how he continued to find inspiration in the classical bass lines of Brahms and Bach. They also discuss the origin of Phil’s truly special music venue Terrapin Crossroads which opened in 2012; its origin, its legacy, and how it birthed The Terrapin Family Band with his son Grahame and others.
