Final Hornings ‘Jellyfish’
We’re back after a busy Jerry Day with some belated news from North Plains, Oregon. After a brief rest from the road following the BIG Summer Classic, String Cheese Incident hosted its final Horning’s Hideout event. On the festival’s concluding night String Cheese Incident peppered its setlist with a number of special guests throughout its two-set show. During ‘Catfish John’ Railroad Earth’s Tim Carbone emerged on fiddle, later returning with his bandmates for ‘Big Sciota,’ ‘How Mountain Girls Can Love’ and ‘Long Way to Go.’ Deeper into the group’s second set, Scott Law joined in on guitar for ‘Shantytown,’ before yielding to percussionist Brian Blue on ‘Jellyfish.’ For its encore, String Cheese invited back Law and Carbon, as well as New Monsoon guitarist Jeff Miller, Railroad Earth clarinetist Andy Goessling, Railroad Earth mandolinist John Skehan, Jamie Janover and New Monsoon percussionist Marty Ylitalo, for a festival-closing version of Bob Dylan’s ‘Quinn the Eskimo.’ A night earlier, Janover made news when he conducted a piece of Third Eye Open Ceremonial Theatre between the group’s sets. String Cheese Incident is now off the road until its Japanese tour begins on September 28.
