Kramer views the Grateful Dead “as a completely unique American invention. And that’s American with a capital A in the truest sense. They played American music: rock ’n’ roll and rhythm and blues and bluegrass and folk and country and a little bit of gospel underneath it and they presented it in a uniquely American context.”
In addition to the library and archives and the Grateful Dead exhibit, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum regularly hosts concerts and special events. Visit www.rockhall.com for a full listing of upcoming events.
