Grateful Dead Fare Thee Well: 5 Hours of Intermission Music Written for 50th Anniversary Shows

The Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well run, which kicked off Saturday, June 27 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., brought out the jams in a big way -- not just onstage, but during the hour-long set break.
That's when fans got to hear original music composed by Neal Casal and a group of musicians he recruited and (jokingly) named Franklins of the World. He got the gig after Bill Kreutzmann's son, Justin, a noted filmmaker who curated the visual component during set break, asked him to come up with a minimum of five hours of original music to soundtrack the nightly Fare Thee Well time-out.
