The Seva Foundation has announced the lineup for a “Quarantine Concert” celebrating Wavy Gravy‘s 84th birthday. The digital concert for the psychedelic clown will feature archival performances from Bob Weir, David Crosby & Graham Nash, Chris Robinson, and more.
All of the archival footage comes from past Seva benefits from 2007—2019. The “Quarantine Concert” will also feature performances from Ani DiFranco, Blind Boys Of Alabama, Bonnie Raitt & Ruthie Foster, Dr. John & Buffy Sainte-Marie, Hot Tuna, Jackson Browne, Jason Mraz, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Poor Man’s Whiskey, Roy Rogers & Carlos Reyes, Steve Kimock, Rising Appalachia, Steve Earle, and Zero.
According to a post on the Seva Foundation Facebook page, the content will be available from May 14th—17th via a Vimeo link that will be posted on the 14th. Viewers will be able to enjoy the content at their leisure during those four days and, if they feel so inclined, make a donation to the Seva Foundation. The link will be available through the foundation’s website and will be posted across social media platforms as well as sent out to the organization’s email list.
Since its formation in 1978, the Seva Foundation has worked as a non-profit to help restore the gift of sight across the world. Throughout its history, the organization has been intrinsically tied to the counterculture music scene going back to its beginnings in Berkley, CA. After being founded by figures including Wavy Gravy and Ram Dass, Seva has kept close ties with the psychedelic music scene and even hosted the Grateful Dead at the organization’s first benefit concert back in 1979. Bob Weir also serves as a lifetime honorary member on Seva’s board of directors.
