Bob Weir and The Roots Active at Climate Rally on The National Mall

Bob Weir and The Roots both made multiple appearances on Sunday during the Climate Rally on The National Mall. Weir was the first of the day’s major acts to perform, delivering solo takes on “When I Paint My Masterpiece” and “Throwing Stones.” Then Furthur’s John Kadlecik added fiddle and Tao Rodriguez-Seeger contributed banjo to “Ripple.” Weir also returned with Jimmy Cliff for “Save the Planet” and “Sitting in Limbo.” The Roots later brought Bobby back out for “Dancing in the Street” during a guest-laden set that also saw appearances by Booker T. Jones (“Green Onions”), Mavis Staples (“I’ll Take You There”), Joss Stone (“It’s A Man’s World”) and Robert Randolph (“Purple Haze”). John Legend then joined the Roots for a set that concluded with “Wake Up Everybody” before Sting and The Roots collaborated on the final performance of the day, which included versions of “Fragile,” “One World” and “Message in a Bottle.” Weir, Legend and members of The Roots also watched indie pop band Passion Pit sidestage.
