Garcia / Grisman Discography

This is a discography of 1990's musical partnership of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. It does not include recordings by any other groups that included both Garcia and Grisman

Jerry Garcia and David Grisman first met in the parking lot of a bluegrass festival in West Grove, Pennsylvania in 1964. They were both members of Old & In The Way in 1973 and performed together occasionally in other situations. They started performing and recording together in 1990 usually supported in concert by Jim Kerwin (bass) and Joe Craven (violin, percussion). Subsequently they performed live occasionally but recorded many sessions at David Grisman's Dawg Studios (at least 40 sessions according the David Grisman). The majority of their recordings are drawn from those studio sessions.
