Dave Solo in Seattle

By Waldo Jaquith
Dave will be doing yet another solo performance, this time at the Groundwork 2001 benefit concert in Seattle. The October 14th show also features Emmylou Harris (whose "Red Dirt Girl" featured Dave) and Daniel Lanois (whose "The Maker" and "The Beauty of Wynona" have often been covered by DMB.) Groundwork is a week of concerts that raises money for small farmers in developing countries. Also performing during the week are ATO's Chris Whitley, Afro-Celt Sound System (who opened for DMB during this tour), Alanis Morissette (who performed with DMB on "Crowded Streets") and Pearl Jam. Thanks to Susan and Jeff who got us the news simultaneously.
