Trey Anastasio Performs ‘Lifeboy’ At The Beacon Jams: Pro-Shot Video
Trey Anastasio shared video featuring a gorgeous version of “Lifeboy” from the most recent The Beacon Jams livestream concert, which took place on Friday, November 20. Anastasio was backed by the Rescue Squad Strings and Trey Anastasio Band members Jennifer Hartswick, Natalie Cressman and James Casey for the fresh arrangement of the Phish classic.
The guitarist went acoustic for “Lifeboy,” which Phish originally released on the 1994 studio album Hoist. Jennifer, Natalie and James sang a vocal arrangement crafted by Carmel Dean, while the Rescue Squad Strings (Anja Wood on cello, Rachel Golub on viola and Katie Kresek and Maxim Moston on violin) performed an arrangement put together by Don Hart.
“Lifeboy” was performed in the middle of the set after a stirring rendition of “Harry Hood.” Last Friday’s The Beacon Jams was the penultimate installment of the series. The Beacon Jams comes to a close this Friday, November 27 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on the JamBase Livestreams Calendar via Twitch.
