Holly Bowling has become known for her meticulously transcribed instrumental renditions of well-known jam band works. A lifelong Phish and Grateful Dead fan, the classically trained musician was moved to adapt Phish’s “Tweezer” for solo piano after witnessing the band play a now-famous 37-minute version of the song in Lake Tahoe in 2013. Basing her arrangements on already improvised works, Bowling furthers the pieces with her own improvisations as heard on her first album, 2015’s Distillation of aDream: Music of Phish Reimagined for Solo Piano. The album garnered wide acclaim, especially in the jam band community. A year later, she applied the same concept to the music of the Grateful Dead on her second LP, Better Left Unsung. This is her first live release.
The album’s release date is also the first day of Holly Bowlings solo-piano tour, which takes her stunning live show to 21 citifies throughout the continental US.
