The 13th Annual NedFest kicked off in style Friday evening with a stellar lineup of great local talent. The evening was capped off with an amazing and cool onetime “Super Group” of the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann, String Cheese Incident’s Kyle Hollingsworth, Steve Kimock and George Porter Jr. The performance marked the first time an original member of the Grateful Dead played the event. The band played a number of GD standards mixed with soulful jams. Look for more photos and video to be posted in the coming days and follow our festival experience on Twitter at @TC_Unframed.
