Phil Lesh Guests With Greensky Bluegrass At Terrapin Crossroads

Last night was a big night for Michigan’s Greensky Bluegrass, who jammed with one of their idols –Phil Lesh -at the Grateful Dead bassist’s Terrapin Crossroads venue in San Rafael, California. Lesh came out towards the middle of the second set and jammed with the five-piece for the rest of the set.

The Barn Presents reports Lesh utilized his typical electric bass, while Greensky’s Mike Devol stuck with upright for double bass action throughout the sit-in. Phil and Greensky’s approximately minutes on stage together featured a mix of originals such as “All Four” and “Don’t Lie” along Grateful Dead classics “Mr. Charlie,” “Black Muddy River” and “Franklin’s Tower.” The well-jammed “Don’t Lie” even hit upon “Eyes Of The World” before its conclusion.

Earlier in the evening, Greensky Bluegrass was joined by crew member Keith Kinnear on “Burn Them” during a second set that also included covers of the Dead’s “China Cat Sunflower” and “Midnight Rider” by The Allman Brothers Band. Greensky put a stamp on the evening with an encore of “Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You” and “Goin’ Down The Road Feeling Bad.”
