The String Cheese Incident Welcomes The Travelin’ McCourys, Honors Jerry Garcia

The String Cheese Incident wrapped up its Horning’s Hideout event yesterday in North Plains, OR. The group was introduced by Bob Horning, the facility’s namesake, who is running for Oregon state senate and joked that part of his campaign platform includes more concerts and more String Cheese. The group opened its set in expanded fashion with the assistance of the Travelin’ McCourys, who preceded SCI and were the only other group to appear on the main stage on Sunday. The two groups combined forces for “Lester had a Coconut,” “Rollin’ In My Sweet Baby’s Arms,” “Walls of Time,” “Think Of What You’ve Done,” “Six Days on the Road” and “Orange Blossom Special’ before Col. Bruce Hampton stepped up as well for “Fixin’ To Die.” Bill Nershi mentioned that the previous night the two groups had also shared a backstage jam together. Late in the second set Scott Law stepped out with String Cheese and offered a nod to Jerry Garcia with “Eyes of the World” and then remained for “Outside Inside.” The four days of music then closed out as the String Cheese Incident delivered a “Best Feeling” encore and then walked off only to be drawn back again for the group’s final tune of the festival, “Good Times Around the Bend.”
