Widespread Panic Welcomes Marcus King & Joel Cummins At Trondossa Festival


Widespread Panic brought out guitarist Marcus King and Umphrey’s McGee keyboardist Joel Cummins for separate sit-ins during their headlining performance Sunday night at the Trondossa Festival. Cummins emerged to close out the first set and King came out to assist a pair of covers during the second set.

Named after a Col. Bruce Hampton song, Trondossa was held again at Riverfront Park in North Charleston, South Carolina after making its debut last year. Panic ended their first set with Cummins joining keyboardist John “JoJo” Hermann on a cover of Funkadelic’s “Red Hot Mama.” King joined WSP mid-second set on guitar and vocals on David Bromberg’s “Sharon” and Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy.”

Widespread Panic closed out the set with a drums breakdown that led into “Saint Ex” and a cover of Hampton’s “Trondossa.” The night ended with “Fishwater” as fireworks exploded above the stage. Watch video of King sitting-in with Widespread Panic via Fred Ramadan below:
