Happy Birthday Warren Haynes: Performing Solo

Advertisement

Guitarist Warren Haynes was born in Asheville, North Carolina on this date in 1960. The 58-year-old celebrating a birthday today is among the most admired and active musicians who continues to wow live audiences at numerous concert appearances each year.

The former Allman Brothers Band guitarist and current Gov’t Mule co-founding frontman, Haynes is widely respected by fans and fellow performers not only for his musicianship but his outstanding charitable work, particularly the Christmas Jam the annual hometown charity concert supporting Habitat For Humanity. Throughout his impressive career, Warren has shared the live stage with a countless array of talented musicians at venues around the world. However, for his birthday today, below is a set of 10 videos that present Haynes in various formats performing solo.

The 10 videos span 2009 to 2016 and feature Warren playing both acoustic and electric guitar. There’s footage from his impromptu set at Mountain Jam 2016 of a cover of George Harrison’s “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” as well as a series of clips from 2015 while promoting his album Ashes & Dust which was recorded with Railroad Earth. Along with tracks from the album, Haynes plays covers of “One” by U2 and “Wild Horses” by The Rolling Stones.

There’s behind-the-scenes footage of Warren playing “River’s Gonna Rise” in 2012 in the East Wing at the White House while participating in President Barack Obama’s In Performance at the White House: Red, White & Blues event. Haynes can also be seen playing his ABB original “Old Friend” during a stop in Telluride, Colorado in 2012. Warren’s acoustic slide playing talents are then on display via an outtake performance of “Catfish Blues” from the documentary film Sidemen: Long Road To Glory.

A solo acoustic version of the Celtic traditional tune “Railroad Boy” filmed by Paste at the 2010 Hangout Music Festival comes ahead of the final clip in the set, the ABB/Haynes classic “Soulshine” from a 2009 radio appearance on the Opie Show. Watch Warren solo below:
