Talking Drums with Mickey Hart
Join us this Saturday 3 pm on "Folk Music & Beyond" for an encore broadcast of our conversation with Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart. This weekend marks the Dead's 50th anniversary and their final performances together as a band. Hart talks about his other life outside of the Grateful Dead--the active role he's played in helping to preserve the endangered music of Bali, Africa, and other parts of the world. He also talks about his collaborations with some of the greatest percussionists in the world--Zakir Hussein, Airto Moreira, Babatunde Olatunji, and Hamza el Din.
