Review & Photos | Lockn' Festival - Day Two | Virginia

Later, closing out the evening, Zac Brown sat in with Furthur on several classics. He led the band through his own hit, "Free," with strums on his acoustic, and the group quickly and easily picked up the rhythms and melodies. A cover of "Into The Mystic" thrived thanks to Brown's vocals, as the vintage Irish melody took on a bit of Southern twang and charm, before finding its way back into "Free." "Tennessee Jed" was perfectly suited for Zac's vocal inflection, while not sounding as country as the version of the song by Levon Helm. Brown doesn't get a lot of credit in the jamband circles, but maybe, after this day's performances, he'll have gained several new fans.

Sans Brown, Furthur then closed their final set of the evening with a stellar run through their classic "Help On The Way" > "Slipknot!" > "Franklin's Tower" song suite, which along with a "Touch Of Grey" encore that saw the return of Zac Brown, brought an end to an exceptional day and evening of music. The lineup keeps getting stronger each day, so I have high hopes for Saturday's performances.
