Stream or Download: Terrapin Flyer Covers Workingman's Dead at Abbey Pub Residency

The weekly Dead jam is back in Chicago! Each Wednesday, Terrain Flyer brings a host of  the best Dead-loving musicians from all over the city to jam out at Abbey Pub.

They promise to cover a new full album the last Wednesday of each month (next up is Skull and Roses on 3/27).  For their first attempt, on February 27th, they hammered out Workingman's Dead, staying true the acoustic instrumentation on the album, and even brought in a "Pigpen" on blues harp (Rickey Trankle), lap steel player (Rocco Labriola0, and Ben Wright of Henhouse Prowlers on banjo.  Then, they capped the night off with another full set of GD and JGB tunes before encoring with an acoustic "Ripple"
