Review & Photos | Peach Music Festival 2013 | Scranton

Sunday, August 18th

Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass shared their unique brand of American bluegrass, Dirty Dozen Brass Band delivered a set of high-energy brass band funk and The Black Crowes closed the festival with a frenetically-paced set of classics, with Chris Robinson introducing Bob Weir’s sit-in by exclaiming, “Please welcome the Mayor of Peach Fest…”

Highlights:

Bob Weir :: 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. :: Peach Stage

If Bob Weir is playing three sets at a Festival, you can bet that at least two are going to make it into the highlights. Last year, it was “Wake up with Warren” that started off the last day of the festival, but this year’s “Brunch with Bobby” had been circled on many folks' calendars for months and it seemed to draw an even larger crowd. Bobby, clad in his now trademark khaki capri pants, Birkenstocks and broad grey facial hair that is reminiscent of The Lorax, treated the early afternoon revelers to a diverse set. From the traditional bluesy “Walkin’ Blues” to the upbeat cowboy tune “Me and My Uncle,” fans in attendance were entranced by Weir's solo acoustic performance. Bobby was on point, flawlessly delivering both Grateful Dead classics and various other standards including a cover of Memphis Jug Band’s “KC Moan” and Delbert McClinton’s “Standing on Shaky Ground.” To augment Weir’s patented playing style, fans were fortunate to have Pennsylvania native Steve Kimock sit-in on a slew of tunes including a lengthy “Playin'” jam and a poignant “Peggy-O."

There is nothing better than love and it was indeed in the air at Peach Festival and for good reason. With great music, fantastic weather, a waterpark, great friends old and new and a meticulously organized festival - there was much to fall in love with.
