While Phil and Friends’ shows at Terrapin Crossroads’ Backyard have been sidelined due to the California lockdowns, Phil was still able to share some Hanukkah cheer.
A few days ago, The Terrapin Family Band banded together with Phil Lesh and Mark Levy for a very special version of the Grateful Dead classic “Samson & Delilah.” Hats off to Grahame Lesh, Ross James and Elliot Peck for the Hebrew vocals!
Here are the notes on the performance from The Terrapin Family Band’s Facebook post:
Happy Hanukkah from Phil & The Terrapin Family Band! Dig into this Hebrew version of “Samson & Delilah” w/ our good buddy Mark Levy joining in on the fun. Special thanks to Rabbi Daniel Brenner, Mike Greenhaus, Tamar Oded, and Pete Shapiro for helping to make this happen!
