Tedeschi Trucks Band Goes Acoustic Again In Boston


Tedeschi Trucks Band wrapped up their three-night run at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on Saturday night. Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and company delivered an acoustic set once again to mark their final show of 2019.

But TTB would get things going with an electric outing, opening up with Marvin Gaye’s “Baby Don’t You Do It.” After “Do I Look Worried” and “Hard Case,” the band would get into more cover material beginning with Bob Dylan’s “Down In The Flood” and continuing with Willie Nelson’s “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces,” as well as a return to Derek And The Dominos’ “Bell Bottom Blues.” TTB first unveiled the Eric Clapton and Bobby Whitlock co-write with Trey Anastasio at Lockn’ during their “Layla” set. The first set came to a close with “I Want More.”

As per the day previous, TTB kicked off the second set with their acoustic section. And once again, they turned heavily to blues greats. But not before they would get things going with one of their own, “Calling Out To You.” “Preachin’ Blues,” a Son House tune, and “Women Be Wise” by Sippie Wallace followed. After TTB’s “When Will I Begin,” the stripped-down band would close out the section with Tampa Red’s “It Hurts Me Too,” a song that was a staple of Pigpen era Grateful Dead.

Other highlights of the second set included “Don’t Let Me Slide” as well as a revisiting of The Allman Brothers’ “Dreams,” which the band debuted earlier this year. After “The Storm,” TTB got back to more Allmans with the classic “Whipping Post” to close out the second set. The group would come back out for an encore of “Let Me Get By” and The Beatles’ “With A Little Help From My Friends.” Check out the acoustic set and more captured by Sean Roche below:
