Greensky Bluegrass & Aoife O’Donovan Perform ‘Atlantic City’ At FreshGrass: Pro-Shot Video
Greensky Bluegrass was joined by special guest Aoife O’Donovan during the band’s set on September 21 at the FreshGrass Festival at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. Pro-shot video featuring GSBG and O’Donovan’s cover of “Atlantic City” by Bruce Springsteen from the set has surfaced.
O’Donovan emerged halfway through Greensky’s FreshGrass set for a series of three songs. Aoife added to originals “Merely Avoiding” and “What You Need” as well as “Atlantic City.” Bruce Springsteen originally released “Atlantic City” on his 1982 album, Nebraska. GSBG debuted a take on the song sung by mandolinist Paul Hoffman in 2011 and the cover has been a staple for the quintet ever since.
Hoffman provided harmony vocals on “Atlantic City” at FreshGrass with O’Donovan taking the lead. Watch pro-shot video of the collaboration below thanks to LessThanFace Productions:
