Guitarists Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi had a busy weekend of festival appearances with the Tedeschi Trucks Band. On Friday, the group played DelFest in Maryland, where they were joined by the festival’s namesake Del McCoury and his son Ronnie McCoury. On Saturday, the band performed at the sixth annual Greenwich Town Party held at the Connecticut city’s Roger Sherman Baldwin Music Park featuring fellow headliners Hall & Oates and John Fogerty. Trucks’ band shared the stage with one of his musical teachers, Col. Bruce Hampton in Greenwich.

Friday’s Tedeschi Trucks Band set at DelFest saw the group aided by Del & Ronnie McCoury on George Jones’ “Color Of The Blues,” while Ronnie returned later to lend a hand on Bob Dylan’s “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright.” The rest of the set was focused on material from the TTB’s three studio albums.
