Furthur performed at Mohawk, NY’s Gelston Castle Estate Friday night. During the group’s second set, Bob Weir introduced a new composition called “Seven Hills of Gold.” The song is fourth original Furthur has performed since forming in 2009. The Grateful Dead offshoot’s other new songs include Phil Lesh’s “Colors of the Rain” and “Welcome to the Dance,” as well as “Muli Guli.” All four songs were written with longtime Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter. Furthur’s summer tour will continue at Stroudsburg, PA’s The Sherman Theater tonight.
