9eb9/1241369532-billkretuzmann_early_.jpg Bill Kreutzmann, one of the Grateful Dead’s longtime drummers (alongside drummer Mickey Hart) — a founding member of the legendary rock band — will visit Charleston with his musical side project, BK3, with a concert at the Music Farm on Fri. June 5. Kreutzmann was a part of the Grateful Dead’s core since joining Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, and Ron “Pigpen” McKernan in 1965 in the Uptown Jug Champions and the Warlocks (the precursors to the Grateful Dead).

Kreutzmann is spending this spring touring with the Dead, and part of this summer with his new trio, which features bassist James “Hutch” Hutchinson (of Bonnie Raitt’s band) and guitarist Scott Murawski (of Max Creek). 1632/1241369561-billkreutzmann.jpg

On the visual side of things, an art exhibit titled The Art of Bill Kreutzmann and the Grateful Dead was part of the concerts at various cities along the Dead tour. The exhibit demonstrates some of the drummer’s most accomplished photography and digital media work in recent years.

Tickets for the Fri. June 5 Music Farm show are available for $20. For more information contact 843-722-8904 or visit www.musicfarm.com.

The tour included stops at the Mountain Jam Festival in Hunter, N.Y., the Wanee Music Festival in Live Oak, Fla., and the All Good Music Festival in Masontown, West Va.
