The first collaboration came towards the middle of Panic’s lone set, when guitarist Luther Dickinson of North Mississippi All-Stars and The Word emerged along with his brother Cody Dickinson on washboard for a covers of JJ Cale’s “Ride Me High” and Howlin’ Wolf’s “Tail Dragger.” Later in the set, guitarist Eric McFadden augmented Widespread Panic on “Arleen” > “Red Hot Mama.” Widespread Panic’s cover-heavy performance ended with an encore featuring two more -“Honky Red” and “City Of Dreams.”

Cody Dickinson made his 16th appearance with the Georgia rockers, while Luther’s sit-in was his 15th. Both Dickinson brothers last performed with Panic back in April at Jazz Fest in New Orleans. McFadden, who is a member of Stockholm Syndrome with Panic bassist Dave Schools, made his tenth appearance with the band last night.
