Bob Weir, a guitar player and singer for the Grateful Dead, will make his first appearance at MerleFest 2006

Singer and guitarist for the Grateful Dead, Bob Wier, is slated to perform at MerleFest 2006, the annual celebration of Americana music. The 19th annual festival, to be held April 27-30 on the campus of Wilkes Community College, will be opened by bluegrass legend Doc Watson who also is scheduled to perform alongside his grandson Richard Watson.

To be on stage alongside Weir is the veteran Merlefest band, The Waybacks. Among some other headliners to make an appearance at the event are Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Bela Fleck, the Flecktones, and Nickel Creek. The annual event is aimed to raise money for the Eddy Merle Watson Garden for the Senses, named for Watson's son and fellow musician, who were killed in a 1985 tractor accident.
