Joe K. Walsh was one of four Peghead Nation instructors (with Evie Ladin, Brittany Haas, and John Reischman) who taught at the recent Great Lakes Music Camp in West Olive, Michigan, along with many other luminaries of the roots music world.
On the last day of camp, Joe gathered with Grant Gordy and Darol Anger, two of his bandmates in the progressive acoustic band Mr. Sun, as well as Ethan Setiawan and Jake Howard, two of his favorite young mandolinists. This powerhouse pickup band then blew through two David Grisman tunes, including “E.M.D.,“ first recorded on the classic David Grisman Quintet album in 1977. The track led off that record, and while Darol Anger holds down the octave mandolin duties on the version in this video, he played fiddle on the original track and that Quintet album. The song title is short for “Eat My Dust.”
