The Marcus King Band Welcomes Jennifer Hartswick, Nicki Bluhm & More For ‘The Last Waltz’ Tribute
The Marcus King Band concluded their Four Of A Kind livestream series on Monday night with a guest-filled tribute to The Last Waltz. King and an expanded version of his band were joined by Jennifer Hartswick, Nicki Bluhm, Maggie Rose, Devon Gilfillian and more for performances of 15 songs played by The Band during their famed 1976 farewell concert.
Last night’s livestreamed concert, which originated from Nashville, started the same way The Last Waltz did with “Up On Cripple Creek” and “The Shape I’m In.” Gilfillian emerged to sing lead vocals and play rhythm guitar on “The Shape I’m In.” The MKB then delivered a sultry version of “I Shall Be Released” before Maggie Rose stepped up to front the group on “Stage Fright” and Elizabeth Cook belted out the horn-driven “Ophelia.”
Marcus King went acoustic for a gorgeous rendition of “Helpless” in which he started solo before the full band came in to build to a rousing conclusion. The evening’s next guest was Nicki Bluhm, who channeled Joni Mitchell on “Coyote.” King then led the MKB through “It Makes No Difference” ahead of British duo Ida Mae coming out to front a rollicking version of Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” From there, Jennifer Hartswick emerged to add trumpet to “Further On Up The Road” and show off her powerful pipes by duetting with King on “Such A Night.”
Next, The MKB went without guests for the one-two punch of “Don’t Do It” and “Caravan.” Early James then joined the band to sing and add guitar to “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.” All of the evening’s previous guests and Sierra Ferrell came out to augment The Marcus King Band on “The Weight” to close out the concert.
