Stephen Inglis is a Hawaiian-born guitarist. He released an album of Hawaiian-style Bob Dylan interpretations a few years back, and our mutual friend Blair Jackson encouraged him to do the same with Grateful Dead material (Stephen has been a fan since he was a teenager). He invited me to sing some harmonies on the record, and he also included (as bonus material) two live tracks from a show we did together in Honolulu in the spring of 2017.
