Phil Lesh Offers Free Webcast, Showcases Chris Robinson

After a day off, the grand opening celebration for Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads continued last night. This incarnation of Phil Lesh & Friends featured Grahame Lesh, Black Crowes singer Chris Robinson, Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring, Furthur/RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and Furthur/Duo drummer Joe Russo. Shortly before the show, Terrapin Crossroads announced a free webcast of the performance. The group’s first set included Robinson’s new “Rainy Day Singer,” as well as Otis Redding’s “Hard to Handle,” which both the Grateful Dead and the Black Crowes covered early in their career. During their second set, the ensemble also dipped into the Before the Frost number “Appaloosa,” one of the few Crowes songs that lives on in Robinson’s Brotherhood. Earlier in this month’s Terrapin Crossroads run, Phil Lesh & Friends also performed the Crowes classic “Thorn in My Pride.” The ensemble also moved into Tim Buckley’s “Hallucinations” during “Unbroken Chain.”

Here’s a look at last night’s setlist via Lesh’s run will continue on Thursday night.
