Furthur Festival Jumps Into Calaveras County

Mark Twain's celebrated jumping frogs of Calaveras County better watch their lily pads May 28-30 during the newly announced Furthur Festival @ Mountain Aire. The fest will take place on four stages over three days in California's Sierra Foothills.

Furthur will perform a Friday-night soundcheck, host a late-night jam later that evening, and headline the two following nights. Their guests include Electric Hot Tuna, Jackie Greene, Galactic, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, Mark Karan & Jemimah Puddleduck, the Mother Hips, the Waybacks, Common Rotation with Dan Bern, Carney, Maiden Lane, and Blue Light River.

The festival will serve as prelude to Furthur's summer tour and marks their first shows without RatDog drummer Jay Lane, who announced that he'll be quitting Furthur to rejoin Primus.
