Forty years ago on a monday night during the first week of October, a bluegrass band walked on to the stage of The Boarding House in San Francisco. The band included two of Bill Monroe's former Blue Grass Boys, guitarist Peter Rowan and fiddle virtuoso Vassar Clements, mandolinist David Grisman and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead picking banjo along with his bass playing sidekick, John Kahn. That historic event has been released by Acoustic Oasis as Old & In The Way: Live at the Boarding House
. The two disc set features two sets from October, 1, 1973 and two more sets from October 8, 1973.
