Last night, Bob Weir hosted his weekly Weir Here webcast at TRI Studios. As previously reported, he was joined by singer Shana Morrison and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby for most of his performance.
Weir opened the webcast with a solo take on “Corrina.” Then, Crosby and Morrison emerged for the rest of Weir’s show. Their first segment focused on covers: Morrison sang lead on Jackie Wilson’s “(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher” as well as Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry’s “Rainy Day.” Crosby—who played fiddle and piano during the performance—also sang lead on a cover of Beck’s “Saint Dude.”
Later in the evening, Shana helped the trio through her father Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love” and “Into the Mystic.” Between the evening’s first two segments, the three musicians answered a series of fan-submitted questions, and before the evening’s third segment, Weir talked with longtime Dead crew member Steve Parish.
Weir confirmed that he would host another Weir Here broadcast next Wednesday.
