Midnight North have cancelled four of their upcoming Northeast shows. The ensemble, which features Grahame Lesh, had dates booked in the area between February 29-March 3, around Phil Lesh’s upcoming dates at Port Chester, NY’s Capitol Theatre. Several of their other upcoming appearances will now become Grahame Lesh & Friends shows.

A note from the band reads:

To our dear friends & fans,

Recently we learned that our dear Elliott Peck was diagnosed with a major health issue that will keep her away from the stage for a few months. Elliott has shared her experience in the post below. To do everything we can to support her in her recovery, we are sad to announce that we will not be performing as Midnight North until Elliott is once again healthy enough to join us on stage.

To that end, we will be cancelling next week’s 4 shows in New England – February 29 at Nectar’s in Burlington, March 1 at Putnam Place in Saratoga Springs, March 2 at Rockwood Boston, and March 3 at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth. Tickets will be refunded at the point of sale.

The 4 shows the following weekend (March 7-10 co-headlining with the Mother Hips) will become Grahame Lesh & Friends shows, with Grahame & the rest of MN doing our best to fill the air with musical healing energy. Those shows are March 7 at the Hamilton in Washington DC, March 8 at Brooklyn Bowl in New York, March 9 at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, and March 10 at Middle Ages Beer Hall in Syracuse.

We will have more information on the rest of our scheduled dates in the Spring in the coming days and weeks.

We appreciate you all for reading and thank you for your positive & healing thoughts, prayers, & support!

Much love – Elliott, Grahame, Nathan, Connor, & TJ

Peck has also issues her own statement. She explains:

I’m writing to share some difficult news. Last week I was admitted to the hospital after experiencing severe stomach pain. After getting a CT scan, the doctors determined I have a large tumor located in my abdomen. While I’m still waiting for the biopsy results, I will regardless have to have a pretty complex surgery to remove the tumor. Unfortunately this will be putting me on hiatus from touring & local shows for a while I get through this process & recover. Please send all your positive thoughts & prayers as I work through this difficult time. I deeply appreciate your kindness & support.
Much love,


Midnight North performed earlier this month before Peck’s diagnosis.
