Spafford’s Red Johnson Covers Greensky Bluegrass
The song originally appears on Greensky’s 2014 album, If Sorrows Swim. Members of Greensky Bluegrass and Spafford have collaborated live in the past including Greensky guitarist Dave Bruzza joining Spafford for a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover in 2017 and Spafford’s Brian Moss sitting in with GSBG at Levitate Music & Arts Festival in 2018.
For Johnson’s rendition of “Leap Year,” the keyboardist does well in transferring the song’s banjo melody to the piano. Check out Johnson performing “Leap Year” below:
