Tedeschi Trucks Band Duo Debuts Neal Casal Cover For ‘Fireside Sessions’ Episode 5
The fifth episode of Tedeschi Trucks Band‘s ongoing “Fireside Sessions” livestream series featured a set from bandleaders Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks. The husband and wife duo played 11 songs for the special that aired on Thursday, including the debut of a Neal Casal cover.
Susan and Derek kicked off the penultimate “Fireside Sessions” with their take on “Day In The Sun,” a song Neal Casal released on his 1995 solo album, Fade Away Diamond Time. The pair then worked through Elmore James’ “It Hurts Me Too” before performing originals “Do I Look Worried” and “Here My Dear.” Last night marked just the second ever “Here My Dear” following its debut in the series’ second episode.
More blues came next as Tedeschi and Trucks played Howlin Wolf’s “Meet Me In The Bottom.” Then, the pair covered “Suzanne” by Leonard Cohen, another song first performed as part of the second “Fireside Sessions” installment.
Derek and Susan went back to originals for “The Storm” and “Calling Out To You,” a pair of tracks from the TTB’s 2013 LP, Made Up Mind. The duo closed out the set with covers of Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin'” and “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces” by Willie Nelson.
“Fireside Sessions” concludes on Thursday, March 25 at 8 p.m. ET. Head to nugs.tv to pre-order.
