Dead Sessions

Playing since 1998, the group is known for its authentic but unique renditions of Grateful Dead classics, thick with heartfelt jams that make even the most jaded DeadHead rejoice. Dead Sessions is composed of a rotating cast of musicians throughout New England, having developed not only into a regular homecoming for VT-area DeadHeads, but also one of the premier experiences for explorative improvisation
