Robert Hunter wrote lots of Grateful Dead songs with Jerry Garcia charting the music. Robert was just on tour in the Fall, 2013. If you want to listen to him playing guitar and singing, there are a bunch of songs on the web here:
Here's what Jambase says about Robert Hunter's tour:
"After spending nearly a decade off the road, Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter is heading out for eight shows this fall. “I began thinking about touring again and started working on my guitar playing,” Hunter said recently. “And the more I played the more I was reminded of the special joy that connecting with an audience brings. And I realized I missed it. It’s time to hit the road.”
Hunter's live shows have historically been mostly filled with Grateful Dead classics, though sometimes with slightly alternate lyrics and other songs from his catalog amassed over the years. For a sample of what to expect, have a listen to this great soundboard recording from PNC Arts Center, August 10, 2004, when Hunter was opening a dozen shows for The Dead."
Well, you can listen to the music even though the tour is over! I bet once you listen to (the first song on the Jambase site) Scarlet Begonias, it'll ring in your ears far into the day like it has for me.
