Captured in 4K UHD amid the gorgeous surroundings of Red Rocks Amphitheater, Greensky Bluegrass delivers an energetic performance as part of its three-night stand in September 2019. The acoustic-based jam-grass band plays originals as well as U2 and Paul Simon covers.
There’s a whole generation of kids, born in the ‘70s and ‘80s, who fell in love with the Grateful Dead just as that band was entering its final years. When some of those kids discovered Jerry Garcia’s bluegrass album, “Old & in the Way,” they realized they could mimic his improvising on portable, wooden instruments without lugging around amplifiers and extension cords. And now, it seems, there’s a jam-grass band in every neighborhood. Nonetheless, Greensky Bluegrass stands out in that crowded scene.
