|Former Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann will join DSO at Gratefulfest 2011|
The 12th installment of Gratefulfest, taking place each year at Nelson Ledges Quarry Park in Ohio over the Fourth of July weekend, returns this year with three nights of Dark Star Orchestra, The 7 Walkers featuring former Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann and BoomBox as well as many other Dead influenced acts.
Other acts slated to perform at this intimate festival include Keller Williams, Railroad Earth, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Donna Jean Band featuring Donna Jean Godchaux of the Grateful Dead (and mother of Zion Rock Godchaux who is half of BoomBox), David Gans, Klyph Black and Rumor Has It, Katz-n-Jammers and The Spikedrivers with many more to be announced.
Gratefulfest is perhaps the best kept secret of the festival season in one of the most beautiful locations imaginable. Situated on 250 acres of woods and meadows and resting on a bed of pink quartz, Nelson Ledges is truly a spiritual place, described on its website as a "known magnetic energy vortex."
For those who don't wish to take in String Cheese and heavy electronica at Electric Forest or who aren't interested in eight sets of Phish at Superball IX, Gratefulfest offers a completely affordable amazing time over the Independence Day holiday.
