Jerusalem Ridge
Composer: Bill Monroe

Jerusalem Ridge was performed by Phil Lesh & Friends.

This instrumental was written in the early 1970's as a showpiece for Kenny Baker who was the fiddle player in the Monroe band at that time. The tune is named for a ridge near Monroe's home town of Rosine. It was first recorded by Monroe in March 1975.
