Gov’t Mule Ends Peach Music Festival With Guest-Filled Set

The 2016 installment of the Peach Music Festival came to a close on Sunday at Montage Mountain in Scranton. Sunday was a big day for Warren Haynes, who not only kicked off the day with a Wake Up With Warren set but closed out the festival with a guest-filled Gov’t Mule set.

Gov’t Mule opened with old school favorites “Mule” and “Thorazine Shuffle” before treating fans to a “Game Face” featuring “Birdland,” “Mountain Jam” and “Norwegian Wood” teases. The guest spot action started when Warren welcomed Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson out to contribute to the Crowes’ classic “Sometimes Salvation.” Mule last played “Sometimes Salvation” way back at the 2014 Mountain Jam festival. Gov’t Mule’s main set ended with a “Rocking Horse” > “Blind Man In The Dark” sequence.

When the quartet returned for the encore they were aided by Charlie Starr, Brit Turner and Brandon Still of Blackberry Smoke for a take on “Come & Go Blues.” Gov’t Mule said farewell and ended the Peach Fest with a pair of Allman Brothers Band covers. Starr, Turner and Oteil Burbridge added to “Dreams,” while Starr and Turner contributed to the first and only other Mule “Whipping Post” since New Year’s Eve.
