The String Cheese Incident Performs ‘Vamp In The Middle’ With Sam Bush & Darol Anger In 2018
The String Cheese Incident shared video featuring a cover of John Hartford’s “Vamp In The Middle” performed with bluegrass greats Sam Bush and Darol Anger. The footage was filmed at SCI’s December 28, 2018 show at Broomfield, Colorado’s 1stBank Center.
The fiddle-themed Hartford classic appears on his 1971 album, Aereo-Plain. The Cheese cover of the song with Bush and Anger came toward the end of the first set during the opening show of the band’s 2018 New Year’s Eve run, which saw Anger and Bush joining in for the entire first set and encore. SCI kicked off the song with Sam and Darol on fiddle and Cheese’s Michael Kang on acoustic mandolin, with Kang eventually picking up a fiddle himself.
