Produced as an annual celebration of and fundraiser for Mount Tamalpais State Park by Nash’s Roots & Branches Conservancy – the annual one-day festival has raised $200,000 for Mount Tam – the event’s lineups have included Jazz legend Herbie Hancock, Grateful Dead vets Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, Wilco, Los Lobos, Grace Potter, Bill Frisell, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Dr. John & the Nite Trippers and Marin favorites the Mother Hips, among many more.
“Sadly, but not surprisingly, and like so many other musical gatherings planned for 2020, we need to reschedule Sound Summit for the Fall of 2021 and are working with optimism towards a brighter outcome next year,” Nash said in a statement. “In the meantime, we’re also at work on plans to video stream past Sound Summit performances in service to a Roots & Branches Bay Area Musicians Relief Fund for local artists who for the past several months have been unable to go out and bring us the joy that live music provides and who may well not be able to do so for some time. Stay tuned, stay safe.”
