String Cheese Incident Welcomes Members of Leftover Salmon In Telluride

EMMITT, THORN AND HERMAN GUEST WITH SCI AT INTIMATE TELLURIDE SHOW

The String Cheese Incident
The String Cheese Incident returned to Telluride this week for two sets as part of the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. On Friday the band performed at the festival itself in Town Park followed by a late-night set on Saturday at the intimate Sheridan Opera House. For last night's performance, SCI was joined by Andy Thorn, Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt of Leftover Salmon at various points of the show.

Banjo wiz Thorn was the first to emerge as he came out towards the middle of the show's lone set for a take on "White Freightliner Blues" by Townes Van Zandt. Thorn wound up sticking around for the rest of the set. Emmitt joined the fray starting with a version of the Flatts and Scruggs classic "Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow" and remained on stage for the set finale of "Sittin' On Top Of The World" (Mississippi Sheiks), "Zombie Jamboree" (Conrad Eugene Mauge Jr.) and "Quinn The Eskimo" (Bob Dylan), all three of which also featured Vince Herman. SCI last performed "Zombie Jamboree" at the All Good Music Festival in 2005 with Herman.

String Cheese Incident took the stage by themselves to kick off a three-song encore with "It Is What It Is." Thorn, Emmitt and Herman came back out for "Texas" and a cover of "I Know You Rider." The band has a week off before they are set to headline Electric Forest next weekend.

Here's the setlist from last night's show:
