Warren Haynes Brings Wolf to TRI Studios for Weir Here
Warren Haynes joined Bob Weir for last night’s episode of Weir Here at TRI Studios. The band was rounded out with Gary Lambert on bass, Jeff Sipe on drums, as well as two background singers. Warren Haynes sported Jerry Garcia’s classic guitar Wolf, which has been playing on his current symphonic tour, for much of the set.
The performance got started with a fantastic take on Robert Johnson’s “Walkin’ Blues” before the group played a cover of The Band’s “The Weight.” Jeff Chimenti then joined on keys for “Bird Song,” which saw Haynes switching from acoustic to electric in the middle of the song. The run of tunes then wrapped up with “West L.A. Fadeaway.”
Next came some quick couch time with the shows guests, Jerry Garcia’s former wife Carolyn “Mountain Girl” Garcia and two of his daughters, before the band reconvened for a fun “Sugaree,” followed by “Crazy Fingers.”
The guests then examined Wolf for a bit on the couch before the band came back out for “Shakedown Street,” which featured a tease of Dizzy Gillespie’s “Salt Peanuts.” The show then wrapped up with a classic “China Cay Sunflower” that, of course, segued into “I Know Your Rider.”
