Phil Lesh & Friends will perform twice at this year’s Lockn’ Festival and number two will feature special guest Carlos Santana joining Warren Haynes, Barry Sless, Rob Barraco and John Molo. This lineup joins the previously announced Friends lineup featuring members of Chris Robinson Brotherhood like Robinson, Neal Casal, Adam MacDougall, Eric Krasno and Tony Leone.

My man Kirk West did a good thing when he turned Derek onto Mad Dogs & Englishmen years ago!
Santana guested with the Grateful Dead throughout their career. Here he is with them 1-26-93 at the Oakland Coliseum for “Stella Blue”:
