New Acts Added to Freedom Hill 2014 Summer Lineup

Bob Weir & RatDog began as a side project for Grateful Dead rhythm guitarist Bob Weir and bassist Rob Wasserman.

RatDog primarily performs Grateful Dead tunes, cover songs and some original work.

Popular since the early 1980s, he has recorded more than 21 albums and compilations, charted more than 30 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and sold more than 25 million records.
