Greensky Bluegrass Covers Eyes Of The World At DelFest

Earlier today we reported on Widespread Panic playing a Grateful Dead cover intended for May 15th’s Dear Jerry concert that was cut from the tribute due to time constraints. Well Panic wasn’t the only band to perform a Dead cover cut from Dear Jerry recently as Greensky Bluegrass played “Eyes Of The World,” the one and only tune they were expected to perform at Merriweather Post Pavilion, on Thursday on this year’s DelFest in Maryland.

DelFest ’15 has been filled with Dead covers as not only did Greensky perform “Eyes Of The World,” but The Travelin’ McCourys tackled “Loser” and Larry Keel Experience played “Brown-Eyed Women.” Watch footage of Greensky Bluegrass’s first and only performance of “Eyes Of The World” besides the version they played with Phil Lesh at Terrapin Crossroads in March thanks to The Lot Scene:
