A "Sugar Shack" Reunion in Burlington

It’s been just over seven weeks since Page McConnell and Mike Gordon performed together in Phish. Last night in Burlington however, the pair took the stage together to revisit one of the compositions from the group’s new release, Joy . Gordon was at Higher Ground closing out the current tour with his present quintet, when McConnell stepped out for a guest slot on keyboards. Gordon and his group opened the show with “Andelmans’ Yard,” and then moved into “What Things Seem” before McConnell emerged for “Sugar Shack.” The two likely will perform the song again together later this month when Phish returns to the stage at Festival 8.
