Musical risings from the dead

The many fans of the Grateful Dead's founder Jerry Garcia will encounter a new way to experience his rich legacy on June 18 when the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration comes to Heinz Hall.

Singer, guitarist and songwriter Warren Haynes will star in the show, which also will include the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra conducted by Fawzi Haimor. It will feature Garcia's compositions as well as standards the Grateful Dead made its own.

Haynes has often performed with the Dead since Garcia's death in 1995, and was a member of the Allman Brothers Band and Gov't Mule.

The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Admission is $30 to $78.

Take it to the hills

Still in the Hills, a first-year bluegrass festival at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, is the kind of event mandolin ace Sam Bush finds exciting.

"We can find a little freedom in an event like this," Bush says about the two days of music June 15 and 16. "If you are playing for an audience who isn't expecting something special, it gives you the chance to do some of our 'newgrass.' "

Such "newgrass," with more electric instruments, is what makes Kentucky-born, Nashville-resident well-known. Bush says some rock fans look at his various groups as rather traditional, while bluegrass fans see them as being too much like rock bands. That gives him the chance to roam different directions with his music.

Bush and his Ambush band will be the headliners at the event featuring more than 20 bands at the Somerset County resort. They will play June 15 in a day also featuring Gangstagrass, Bucky Covington and Joe Purdy. Music June 16 will feature Reverend Payton's Big Damn Band, Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, the Last Bison and Rising Appalachia.

There will be music from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day with fireworks at dusk June 15.

The festival will feature talks on mountain culture, sustainability, green living, along with small-batch spirits tastings.

Two-day general-admission tickets are $85 and one-day tickets are $65.
