Bob Weir will continue his nationwide tour this April playing songs from his critically acclaimed album Blue Mountain with The Campfire Band, comprised of Aaron Dessner, Bryan Devendorf, Scott Devendorf, Josh Kaufman, Steve Kimock and Jon Shaw. VIP packages are available and every online ticket order comes with one (1) physical CD of Blue Mountain. See below for full dates and visit HERE for further ticketing information.
Blue Mountain is Weir’s first solo record in ten years and his first album of entirely original material in thirty years. Producer Josh Kaufman partnered with Weir on the album, which features songwriting collaboration with Josh Ritter and performances from guitarists Aaron Dessner and Bryce Dessner and bassist Scott Devendorf. Drawing on his earlier experiences working on a ranch in Wyoming as a teenager, Weir joined with Ritter, the Dessners, Devendorf and Kaufman to celebrate those times with twelve new songs.
“It’s an album of stately, autumnal, metaphysical cowboy songs…full of towns,
women and aspirations that have been long since left behind, but not forgotten.”
“[Bob Weir] is a poet laureate of deep thinking and whimsy. His voice has taken on a character that finally replaces the forever-young, fresh-faced heartthrob fans knew so well,but even with age, he sounds as good as ever.”
“Weir and his band shamble cheerfully here…”
“A spirit of celebration radiates through Weir’s voice.”
“As heartfelt as anything Weir has ever written and should resonate with fans who have been along for any part of the long, strange trip of his unparalleled career.”
“Weir’s aged voice sound[s] as good, or even better, as other elder statesmen
of rock such as Neil Young or Bob Dylan.”
“It’s a country-flavoured collection of resonant ballads and rustic reflections…another fine addition to an album canon now well into three figures…”
