Tom Hamilton Joins Greensky Bluegrass In Denver


Greensky Bluegrass kicked off a two-night run at Denver’s Mission Ballroom on Friday. Guitarist Tom Hamilton, of opening band Ghost Light, would join the bluegrass quintet to close out the second set.

GSBG got things underway with “The Four” followed by “Train Junkie.” The band would also play “Do It Alone” from their 2019 album All For Money. Greensky closed out the first frame with Peter Tosh’s “Stop That Train.”

The second set started off with “Reverend,” ahead of the Ralph Stanley tune “Clinch Mountain Backstep.” Greensky would also cover the Tears For Fears classic “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” as well as The Allman Brothers’ “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More,” for which they brought out Hamilton. Tom would stay on for one more, “Kerosene.” Greensky would reemerge for an encore of “Past My Prime.”
