Greensky Bluegrass with Fruition :: 9.23.17 :: Red Rocks Amphitheatre :: Morrison, CO

Jamgrass act Greensky Bluegrass returned to the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado on Saturday night. Oregon’s Fruition opened the action on Saturday and once again joined their old friends for a collaborative encore. GSBG kicked off their first of two sets on the cold and rainy night in Morrison with “Past My Prime” and “Run Or Die” off 2016’s Shouted, Written Down & Quoted. The band then went with oldie “200 Miles From Montana” ahead of a cover of The Stanley Brothers’ “Pig In A Pen.” From there, the group strung together “Tuesday Letter” with The Traveling Wilbury’s “Handle With Care” and their own “A Letter To Seymour.”

Towards the end of the first set, GSBG welcomed Fruition’s Mimi Naja, Jay Cobb Anderson and Kellen Asebroek for the rare “Beauty & Pain” before ending the frame with “Living Over.” Greensky began the final set of the night with a 20+ minute “Don’t Lie.” Originals “Better Off” and “Room Without A Roof” were then followed by a cover of “Dustbowl Overture” and the beloved “Reuben’s Train.” A crazy sequence of “Before Bring Out Your Dead” > “Kerosene” > “Bring Out Your Dead” > “War Pigs” (Black Sabbath) > “Kerosene” closed out the second set. Fruition and Greensky loaded the stage for an encore of the former’s “Death Comes Knockin'” along with the latter’s “Fixin’ To Ruin.” Photographer Jeremy Williams was on hand to capture the action:
