SONG: BROKEDOWN PALACE AUDIO VERSION

Which will be performed Friday, August 8, 2014.

Program Description:
Brokedown Palace with David Bryan and friends
Lyrics by: Robert Hunter
Music by: Jerry Garcia
Presented by Mid-Manhattan Performing Arts Foundation (MMPAF)

On the eve of the 19th anniversary of Garcia's death, the Mid-Manhattan Performing Arts Foundation will host a celebration of the music of Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter -- the chief lyricist with whom Garcia worked for most of his performing career. This celebration is being spearheaded by David Bryan (St. Bart's Director of Welcome, Inclusion and Incorporation), an eclectic musician with years of performance experience in the New York music scene. With several guest musicians, David will honor the life of this American cultural icon, as audience and musicians come together to explore the power, beauty, and grace of some of the richest recent additions to the American songbook -- such as the timeless tune "Brokedown Palace," from the inimitable 1970 album American Beauty.
