Keller Williams to release Grateful Grass, tour this summer

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Keller Williams offers up a live, digital-only release titled REX (Live at the Fillmore).  The recording capturesa very special live performance by Grateful Grass – a project featuring Williams, Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) – performing not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites.  The collection, recorded February 8, 2006 at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium, is available now at itunes and other digital retail outlets.  100% of the proceeds from REX (Live at the Fillmore) will go to benefit The Rex Foundation, the charitable non-profit started by the Grateful Dead which gives grants to worthwhile causes. www.rexfoundation.org
