Blackberry Smoke Welcomes Rich Robinson For ‘Wiser Time’ At Peach Music Festival


When Gregg Allman was unable to play at last weekend’s Peach Music Festival a number of changes were made to the lineup including the addition of Rich Robinson. Not only did Rich perform a set with his own band, he also sat-in on Black Crowes classics with Gov’t Mule and Blackberry Smoke.

Robinson emerged during Blackberry Smoke’s set to jam on “Wiser Time,” one of the Crowes’ signature songs. Rich has only played “Wiser Time” sparingly since the Crowes broke up including last September, when he joined Blackberry Smoke for a raging version of the tune. The Crowes guitarist and Blackberry Smoke offered a more subdued take at the Peach Music Festival, but it always warms the heart to hear Rich Robinson performing “Wiser Time.” Listen to an audience recording of “Wiser Time” taped by Keith Antaya:

Later in the day Rich added to “Sometimes Salvation” with Gov’t Mule:

Blackberry Smoke is currently on the road with Gov’t Mule. The two bands visit Philadelphia tonight.
