Multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby sat in with Furthur at Broomfield, CO’s 1StBank Center last night. Crosby, a onetime member of Robert Randolph & the Family Band and God Street Wine, emerged during Furthur’s second set to play fiddle on “Cumberland Blues.” Later in the evening, he returned to play fiddle on “Days Between,” before switching over to organ for both “Eyes of the World” and the encore of “Brokedown Palace.” Crosby recently played Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads along with the reunited God Street Wine and has popped up at a variety of Marin County jam sessions during the past few weeks.

Furthur will kick off an eight-night run at Port Chester, NY’s The Capitol Theatre on April 16.

I really hope Jason Crosby keeps showing up at Furthur gigs. I saw him sit in with Phil & Friends last November and now sitting in with Furthur. I think he adds a chunk to Furthur. I remember a quote from Garcia when asked back in ’90 or ’91 if Hornsby was a member of the Grateful Dead. Garcia says ‘I don’t know, but he keeps showing up at all our gigs.’ I hope Jason Crosby just keeps showing up at Furthur gigs.
