Long Strange Trip

Sanders Soundstage

GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi is pleased to present a screening of Long Strange Trip, the inspiring, complicated, downright messy tale of the Grateful Dead, from Director Amir Bar-Lev & Executive Producer Martin Scorsese.  The film has been nominated for Best Music Film for the 60th GRAMMY Awards.

The Grateful Dead rejected conventional notions of fame and power and transcended the world of rock and roll to become a vital American cultural force. Yet their commitment to improvisation and spontaneity only brought Jerry Garcia and the Dead more of the kind of adulation they hoped to avoid. Amir Bar Lev’s LONG STRANGE TRIP explores the Grateful Dead’s unlikely success story, and the tensions and paradoxes of a life in pursuit of artistic freedom.

During this screening, exhibits will also be open after hours until 8 p.m. and Levee Break Grill will be on site selling food.
