Mountain Jam 2013 Lineup

Right now Hunter Mountain in New York is a snow covered ski resort. Come June 6-9, 2013 Hunter Mountain will be the home of the 9th Annual Mountain Jam Music Festival. Isn't it great in the dead of winter we can talk about the warmer weather and music festivals.

Well the initial lineup for the 9th Annual Mountain Jam includes:

Phil Lesh and Friends

Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh is playing the festival with some friends with one of his favorite side bands.The band features Warren Haynes and John Scofield on guitars. Joe Russo will compliment Lesh on drums and Jeff Chimenti rounds out the band on keyboards.

Here is 35 minutes of jams from one of Phil's stops at Mountain Jam....

Widespread Panic

Another great jam band will be making the trip to the Catskills...I can't believe they have been playing for 27 years.

Gov't Mule

Warren Haynes is going to be one busy guitar player at this festival playing with Phil Lesh and the Mule


Phil Lesh won't be the only bass player thumping it down Primus will be in town..
