Bob Weir, most recognized as founding member of the Grateful Dead, will bring an intimate, solo acoustic performance to the F.M. Kirby Center on Friday, April 27 at 8:00 p.m.
Weir has a secure place in rock history as the Grateful Dead's co-vocalist and what Andrew Clarke (in one of England's leading newspapers, "The Independent") called the genre's "greatest, if most eccentric rhythm guitarist." He is one of the genuinely fine songwriters of the late 20th century.
Although his life has been consumed by music, Weir has spent a good deal of time as a social activist. His work on behalf of Seva (which fights blindness in Asia and South America – he's a member of the Board) and as an environmental activist (with Greenpeace and the Rainforest Action Network, among others) have been his primary focus. He's not only performed at a zillion benefits but also given deeply of his time, including lobbying Congress on various issues.
