More Info Legendary drummer and co-founder of the Grateful Dead, Bill 
Kreutzmann, together with funky bluesman and voodoo electronic pioneer Papa 
Mali, officially unveil 7 Walkers' spring plans. 7 Walkers, which also 
features bass virtuoso George Porter Jr .(The Meters) and 
multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson and Friends), will stop at 
select markets and festivals through out the country, all in anticipation of 
a new album release. The complete list of currently confirmed tour dates is 
included below.

7 Walkers recently spent time at an Austin, Texas studio, recording an album 
to be released later this year. In addition to a brand-new batch of Robert 
Hunter (Grateful Dead and Bob Dylan lyricist) originals that were co-written 
with the band, the new album offers up favorites from the Grateful Dead 
repertoire, Papa Mali originals, and some New Orleans and Southern songbook 
interpretations. Overall, the result is a fiery and funky collection of tunes 
that quite brilliantly capture the unique collaboration between these two 
very different musical shamans.

Bill Kreutzmann (who played every show in the Grateful Dead's illustrious 30 
year career as well as The Dead incarnations since) first met funky Papa Mali 
at a festival in 2008. Bill recalls in a recent interview, "We first met at 
the Oregon Country Fair last year. He was the headliner on the main stage, 
and I sat there and watched him and went, 'This guy's for real man, I like 
this guy.' Then we met, after that he came over to my trailer that I was 
staying in and you couldn't separate us, we talked for hours. It was just one 
of those natural things, you know? You can't plan it; You can't make it 
happen. And then we started playing together."
