While Little Feat is off the road this year, keyboardist and founding member Bill Payne will tour with longtime Grateful Dead publicist/biographer Dennis McNally. The paired performers will revive their recent multimedia outing, “Tracing Footsteps – A Journal of Music, Photography and Tales from the Road.” As the show’s title suggests, Payne will perform and showcase his photography, McNally will offer stories from his time with the Grateful Dead and the old friends will sit for a conversation.
Little Feat are on hiatus while longtime member Paul Barrere receives treatments for Hepatitis C. However, Barrere will play a duo show with Little Feat’s Fred Tackett at Thornville, OH’s Legend Valley on May 25.
