TERRAPIN LANDING: Phil Lesh To Open New Venue In Marin County
In a posting on the official Furthur Message Board, Phil Lesh outlined plans to open up a new venue in Marin County, California called Terrapin Landing. The building will host album nights, singalongs, West Coast rambles (based on Levon Helm’s Midnight Rambles), and more. Check out the complete post below:
“We’re taking the first steps to make a long time dream- a permanent musical home- come true. We are purchasing a building in Marin, and plan on remodeling it to feel like an old barn; we’re calling it Terrapin Landing. We will continue with Furthur while making music at Terrapin Landing when we are at home.
The music will be varied, featuring:
Phil Lesh & Friends (continuing the tradition of revolving lineups, including old as well as new friends)
West Coast Rambles, based on (and blessed by) Levon Helm’s historic Rambles
Album night- we pick a favorite album or two to play live
Telstar night- we put together a band for free form improvisation
Sing-alongs to monthly Sunday morning gospel music
Monthly big band night
Seminars with local musicians and artists
Our goal is to create a vibrant community gathering place: beautiful, comfortable, welcoming – for members of the community to commingle and enjoy good music.
