Col. Bruce Sits in with Widespread Panic

Widespread Panic returned to their homestate for performances at Atlanta, GA’s The Tabernacle this weekend. Part of the group’s acoustic Wood Tour, the shows were the group’s first at the relatively intimate Tabernacle since a Tunes for Tots benefit in 2008.

On Friday night, Panic invited out their old friend Col. Bruce Hampton for one of his signature covers, Bukka White’s “Fixin’ To Die,” during their second set. The group also closed their show with an appropriate cover of Steve Winwood’s Blind Faith classic “Can’t Find My Way Home.” Then, last night, the ensemble returned to the venue where they debuted a cover of Jimmy Cliff’s
“Many Rivers To Cross.” Complete setlists for both shows are available in the Box Scores section of

Widespread Panic will return to The Tabernacle this evening.

Can’t believe the boys have been rocking like this for so long. Proud Georgia native and you did the state proud last night. Let’s hope for ole Col. up at the Beacon in March with the Brothers!
