Phish guitarist Trey Anastasio joined Furthur — led by Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh and guitarist Bob Weir — on this date in 2013. The landmark collaboration took place at the inaugural LOCKN’ Festival at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, Virginia.

Furthur — Weir, Lesh, guitarist John Kadlecik, drummer Joe Russo, keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and backing vocalists Sunshine Becker and Jeff Pehrson — kicked off their LOCKN’ set on September 7, 2013 with a complete rendering of the Grateful Dead’s 1970 album Workingman’s Dead. Anastasio — who was on hand after performing with Trey Anastasio Band earlier that day filling in for Neil Young — emerged for Workingman’s closer “Casey Jones.”

Trey stuck around to lead Furthur through the live Dead staple, “Bertha,” and also added his expertise on guitar to round out the set with “Truckin,’” “The Other One,” “Viola Lee Blues,” “Scarlet Begonias” and “Fire On The Mountain.” Read an excerpt from JamBase’s coverage of the collab below, beginning with “Truckin’”:

“Truckin’” found Trey trading intense licks with both Lesh and guitarist John Kadlecik as the jam developed. Once the ensemble moved beyond “Truckin’s” structure, Kadlecik led them through an impressive transition into “The Other One.” Keyboardist Jeff Chimenti shined during the “Other One,” thanks to his funky synth work on the psychedelic workout. The long Trey/Furthur summit continued with “Viola Lee Blues,” the first song the guitarist performed with Lesh as a member of the Phil and Phriends band at The Warfield in April of ’99. Anastasio showed off his ability to play well with others in the short-but-sweet “Viola” and by the time a scorching “Scarlet Begonias” > “Fire In The Mountain” started was sporting a massive grin from ear to ear. All in all Trey Anastasio sat in on seven songs for his Furthur debut before “Fire” brought the evening to a close.
