Over the last two nights, March 17-18, Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh put together some serious star power for a run of shows at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. Lesh celebrated his 76th birthday on March 15th, bringing along Warren Haynes, Rob Barraco, John Molo and Lettuce/Soulive guitarist, Eric Krasno. Krasno held his own as the newcomer to the group (though he has played as a “Friend” before), though fans were quite excited as Jimmy Herring returned to the lineup for the two-night stand. Herring, Haynes, Barraco and Molo are “The Q,” one of Lesh’s longest-standing lineups in the days before Furthur.For those who attended, “The Q” certainly felt reminiscent of old times. Thankfully, photographer Bill Kelly was on the scene to capture some of the moments of this run.

The 8th annual festival is going down October 5-8, 2017 in the Blue Ridge Bowl at Infinity Downs Farm in Arrington, Virginia. The lineup comprises a carefully curated blend of national and local roots music acts, and additions include Ani DiFranco, Elephant Revival, Beats Antique, Joan Osborne, Sierra Hull, EmiSunshine, Della Mae, Shook Twins, Sarah Siskind & Sunliner, Phoebe Hunt, Maggie Koerner, Dori Freeman, Erin Lunsford, and Tara Mills. Danny Barnes, Nick Forster, and Gallatin Canyon have also been recently added!Other performers already announced include The Infamous Stringdusters, Drive-By Truckers, Sam Bush Band, The Travelin’ McCourys, The Jerry Douglas Band, Cabinet, Billy Strings, Love Canon, Carl Anderson, and The 8th Annual Garrettgrass Gospel Hour.With half of the lineup consisting of female artists, The Festy Experience Director Michael Allenby says, “We recognize that the previous version of the music industry is hurting and can not invest in artists and progress their careers. It is now the promoter’s job to evolve the industry and we believe that gender equality is a critical issue. Other industries often claim that gender inequality is a ‘pipeline issue’ that will take a long time to evolve; however, there’s no shortage of amazing female artists and performers. The marketing of this talent happens AT festivals… not just FOR festivals.“The fact that the first half of this year’s Festy lineup was ALL MEN went surprisingly unnoticed by most.” Allenby continues, “We see unbalanced programming too often and wanted to do something to draw attention to the issue. It’s one of many progressive changes that The Festy intends to roll out over the coming years and we are challenging promoters to make social progress a priority in all aspects of large-scale community gatherings.”
– hoping to be pushed to certification by the GFFGREGORY ‘Jackie Chan’ Richardson said that he’s willing and ready to embrace his new role with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), where he serves as a coach for the Federation’s national academy, working with the country’s National youth teams.All part of the GFF’s plans, orchestrated by Technical Director Ian Greenwood, Richardson will join former national players,Bryan Joseph and Charles ‘Lily’ Pollard who have all committed to working with the local federal at the various levels of the national teams.“I’m committed to coaching, you know, I’m trying to help the youngsters because it’s better to help the youths, so eventually you get them out at an early age. Eventually, everyone will want to come on board to play football because before some use to say that football has nothing to offer” Richardson said.The 34-year-old is often times mentioned as one of the most gifted players Guyana has ever produced;his exploits saw him reach as far as the USA’s Major League (MLS) when he signed with the Colorado Rapids in 2009.Also establishing his dominance in the Trinidad and Tobago Pro League, Richardson found success in the second tier of USA’s football system with the Carolina RailHawks as well as with the Puerto Rico Islanders,and later Alpha United.The foundation Pele FC player, however, of recent has been finding favour with the Wayne Forde-led GFF, where his expertise on playing ‘upfront’ was highly sought after by Greenwood.In fact, Greenwood told Chronicle Sport yesterday that Richardson’s exceptional ability to control the game as a forward and his skill is something that’s seriously lacking in football in Guyana, while Forde stated that Richardson’s god-gifted skill will surely be needed in the country’s rebuilding process at the youth levels.“If the GFF put that trust in me I will continue doing it because I love coaching and playing football,” Richardson said when asked if he intends to go all the way with the coaching role, as the GFF talks about investing in his future once committed.“I coach, even at my club I would continue coaching because most times I don’t even feel like play, I just want to coach, especially with the those youngsters” Richardson said.Richardson was a part of the Walter Moore scouting programme, where his former Golden Jaguars teammate along with the FF Jaro Coach,Kristian Heames,held a two-day scouting clinic with Guyana’s National U-17 players.“Well the experience is good and we were able to see some of the good talent. We still have some more good players outside that didn’t come, but we have some promising players that could make it out there,so we’re trying to push them a lot now”“Majority of the players from Georgetown knows me. I coach a couple of them at Morgan and those from Chase and a few are with my club. I speak to them a lot, tell them what to do and what not to do, show them how to get certain things done and they adapted very quick” Richardson pointed out.Despite still stating his willingness to don the colours of the Golden Jaguars once given, Richardson, however, stated that his primary focus now is to see the young players “get the knowledge of the game, understand the game the right way, because as long as they understand the game it will come easy to them.”Richardson plans on using every opportunity given by the GFF to his advantage to help better his coaching ability.
