Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass are at the top of their game and it couldn’t come at a better time as many of the band’s Winter Tour dates have found them performing in front of capacity crowds. This past Friday and Saturday nights, Greensky sold out the famed 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and among the band’s performances were a pair of outstanding cover debuts you need to check out.

Greensky Bluegrass welcomed old friend Cris Jacobs of The Bridge out during Saturday’s second set for renditions of “Butcher’s Girl” and The Traveling Wilburys’ “Handle With Care.” An audience recording of the show has surfaced on Archive.org courtesy of Jeff Prater giving us a chance to listen to Greensky Bluegrass & Cris Jacobs’ take on “Handle With Care”:

Later that night, Greensky treated the capacity crowd to an encore of Van Morrison’s “Into The Mystic.” Watch fan-shot video courtesy of Troy Laur:

Next up for Greensky is a performance at Port City Music Hall in Portland, Maine tonight.
