The 2016 Lockn’ Festival yesterday featured a main stage performance by Phil Lesh & Friends featuring the Grateful Dead bassist leading an ensemble composed of Phish’s Jon Fishman on drums and Page McConnell on keys, Joe Russo on drums, Anders Osborne on guitar and The Infamous Stringdusters’ Andy Falco on guitar, Jeremy Garrett on fiddle, Andy Hall on dobro, Chris Pandolfi on banjo and Travis Book on guitar. During their performance, the 10-piece was joined by Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi for a pair of classic Dead songs.
After a delayed start, Phil & Friends opened with “Scarlet Begonias,” followed by twangy takes on “Dire Wolf” and “Rosalie McFall.” A nice jam was formed in the “Uncle John’s Band” that came ahead of the guests joining in. Trucks and Tedeschi both emerged to lend guitar to “Mr. Charlie” with Susan also handling lead vocals. She also led the group (minus Osborne and Book) through a take on “Sugaree” – a staple of TTB performances.
“Shakedown Street” and “Terrapin Station” closed out the Phil & Friends set Saturday at Lockn’. The entire set can be streamed below, followed by audience-shot video highlights.
A lineup of Phil Lesh & Friends featuring the Chris Robinson Brotherhood with a special guest spot from Gary Clark Jr. takes place today beginning at 4:15 p.m. ET. A variety of outlets are offering a free webcast of the festival.
