Multi-instrumentalist Larry Campbell toured with Grateful Dead-spinoff Phil and Friends, and his eponymous album with wife and vocalist Teresa Williams features a cover of the Dead’s “Attics of My Life.” Campbell’s and Williams’ played-with lists are both staggering — he was a member of Bob Dylan’s “Never Ending Tour” band and hit the road regularly with Levon Helm; she sang with Mavis Staples, Emmylou Harris, Little Feat and more. Their individual careers waylaid a collaborative effort — until now. “Friends have been after us to do this for years,” Campbell told The Wall Street Journal. “It’s the best because you’re doing the thing you love the most with the person you want to be with the most.” Campbell and Williams play The Grey Eagle on Friday, July 24, at 8 p.m. Kevin Gordon opens. $15 advance/$18 day of show. thegreyeagle.com.
