Phil Lesh and Terrapin Family Band Cover Ronnie Hawkins, Mumford & Sons

Phil Lesh and The Terrapin Family Band gave a nod to Levon Helm during their Midnight Ramble at his barn in Woodstock, NY. The band played a take on “Forty Days,” the Ronnie Hawkins rendition of Chuck Berry’s “Thirty Days.” Helm and the The Band got their start in Hawkins’ backing band, The Hawks.

Lesh and The Terrapin Family Band also played a number of originals by some of the band’s members during the first half of the set, including Brian Lesh’s “St. Peter,” Ross James’ “West” and Grahame Lesh’s “Long Road.” They also covered Mumford & Sons’ “Sigh No More.” The second half of the set consisted of a number of tunes from the Grateful Dead canon like “Jack-a-Roe,” “The Wheel,” “Candyman,” “St. Stephen” and “Deal.”

I am surprised you didn’t report Phil passed some gas the other day. Seems like news to me.

They did report that. It was the boat trip around show thing. Ha!

I’m happy for Phil. I bet he love’s his kids and is living his dream playing with them.
