204 – Taking It Easy With Craig MacArthur Of Casual Coalition

This week on No Simple Road we welcome Craig MacArthur of Casual Coalition! Born on the stage of countless nights at Terrapin Crossroads, The Casual Coalition are a branch from the “community music tree” that was planted at the Marin county venue, owned by Grateful Dead bassist, Phil Lesh.  The Casual Coalition features an always rotating musical cast, led by guitarist/vocalist Craig MacArthur, who organizes each performance with an amazing group of talented, local Bay Area musicians, which have included Brian Rashap (The Mother Hips), Stu Allen (Phil Lesh & Friends, Mars Hotel), Dan “LEBO” Lebowitz (ALO), Greg Loiacono (Mother Hips), Scott Law (Phil Lesh & Friends), Mark Karan (Ratdog, Phil Lesh & Friends), Reed Mathis (Electric Beethoven), Danny Eisenberg (The Mother Hips, Ryan Adams, Counting Crows) & many more! 

We talk with Craig about his days working at Terrapin Crossroads, how the Casual Coalition came together, dealing with isolation in quarantine, what the re-emergence of live music looks like, his craziest memory from working at TXR, and much more!
