Exciting Silent Auction items. Youth presentations. Havdalah celebration. Performer Bio: A brilliant mandolinist who has forged his own inimitable musical path, David Grisman is known far and wide for his "dawg" music, a jubilant, highly intricate, harmonically advanced hybrid of many different stylistic influences (swing, bluegrass, Latin, jazz, gypsy). In addition to his own renowned groups including David Grisman Quintet, Old and In the Way, and the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience (DGBX), David has recorded more than 40 albums (five of which won Grammy nominations) with notables including Jerry Garcia, Stephane Grappelli, the Grateful Dead, John Hartford, Del McCoury, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Early Scruggs, James Taylor and Doc Watson. We are delighted to have David Grisman performing with his wife Tracy as an acoustic duo. Tracy's artwork will also be available for purchase. **A Meet and Greet with David Grisman will be held at 6:30 before the Gala!
