Tedeschi Trucks Band closed a two-night stand at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Saturday with the help of dobro master Jerry Douglas. The collaborations occurred during an acoustic start to the second half of the show and again at the end of the set.

Saturday’s first set kicked off with back-to-back originals, “Learn How to Love” and “Don’t Know What It Means.” The set was further filled in with covers like The Box Tops’ “The Letter,” the Mike Mattison-led take on Bob Dylan‘s “Down in the Flood,” Willie Nelson’s “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces” and other originals including “Don’t Drift Away,” “Do I Look Worried” and the “Idle Wind” closer.

Douglas and Trucks came out at the start of the second set and kicked off the collaboration with an acoustic performance of The Allman Brothers Band instrumental “Little Martha.” Tedeschi and other members of the band emerged for “Strengthen What Remains.” The mostly acoustic/stripped-down sequence continued with keyboardist Gabe Dixon leading a cover of Derek & The Dominoes’ “I Am Yours.” Douglas remained onstage for covers of the blues classics “It Hurts Me Too” and “Leaving Trunk,” and the guest dobro player also assisted a rendition of Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s “Volunteered Slavery.”

The band then assumed their regular places and fully “plugged” back in for “Midnight in Harlem,” “Afro Blue,” “Shame,” “Part Of Me,” “How Blue Can You Get” and “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free.” Douglas came back at the end of the second set for another instrumental Allman’s favorite, “In Memory of Elizabeth Reed.” Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to The Ryman stage for one final song before taking a three-month break, playing an encore consisting of their recently debuted cover of Funkadelic’s “Good To Your Earhole.” Watch video highlights from last night at the Ryman below:
