Originating a signature mix of bluegrass, gypsy jazz, Latin rhythms, klezmer music, and myriad global influences into a holistic approach he calls “dawg music,” David Grisman began his career during the explosive folk and blues revival of the 1960s, working in the Even Dozen Jug Band with future stars Maria Muldaur and John Sebastian before launching a career as a solo artist and a collaborator with gypsy jazz legend Stephane Grappelli, bluegrass legends Del McCoury, Red Allen and Bonnie Raitt, and Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, among others. Grisman’s iconic 1975 acoustic quintet album with Jerry Garcia, Old and in the Way, became one of the best-selling bluegrass albums of all time. In the same year, he formed his most enduring ensemble, the hugely influential David Grisman Quartet, which is still active today.
