Locals Join Mike Gordon at Higher Ground
Gordon performs “Weekly Time” in 2010
Mike Gordon closed his winter tour with a hometown performance at South Burlington, VT’s Higher Ground this past Saturday. Near the end of Gordon’s first set, local guitarist/vocalist Bob Wagner sat in on “River Niger,” Bob Dylan’s “Down In The Flood” and the unreleased Phish song “Weekly Time.” Wagner—a regular at the Radio Bean Honky Tonk Tuesday sessions Gordon helped popularize—also performs in the Burlington group Book’Em Blues Band. In addition, during the show’s set break front of house engineer Rachel Bischoff got engaged onstage.
