The Beacon Scorecard: Week One

The Allman Brothers Band began their March Beacon run last Monday, March 9. These shows mark the 40th Anniversary of the ABB and the group has stated that this year’s performances are dedicated to founder and driving force Duane Allman. This point was emphasized on the first evening when Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks stepped out as a duo and opened with Duane’s composition "Little Martha," which was accompanied by a slideshow featuring images of "Sky Dog." The first week of shows also featured a number of artists who inspired Allman as well as those who were inspired by him, including: Taj Mahal, Levon Helm, Buddy Guy, Trey Anastasio, Boz Scaggs, Robert Randolph, Randy Brecker and Stanley Clarke.

The complete setlists appear below. Remember, all five of these shows (and the ten to follow) can be viewed online with a subscription to Moogis.
