New Jersey-based jamgrass veterans Railroad Earth held a concert at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York Saturday night. The show saw RRE welcome a member of TAUK to sit-in during the second set and a bust out Grateful Dead cover for the evening’s encore.
Instrumental quartet TAUK kicked the night off with an opening set. The band’s keyboardist Alric “A. C.” Carter was welcomed back to The Cap stage in the middle of Railroad Earth’s second set, re-emerging to sit-in on “Addin’ My Voice.”
RRE capped the concert at The Capitol Theatre with a bust out performance of the Grateful Dead’s “Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodleloo.” RRE last covered the Dead original more than one year ago while encoring at The Pageant in St. Louis on January 30, 2016. Listen to “AC” sitting in with RRE and the “Half-Step” breakout performance taped by Tim In Jersey below:
